IS asked, MPs replied: the best minister in the government is the Minister of Finance Matti Vanhanen (center).
- Oh, I'm impressed, nice to hear.
Whether MPs were the target group here, Vanhanen stated and asked the IS about the victory of the ministerial stock exchange.
On the IS Ministerial Exchange, 34 MPs nominated the top three ministers, and Vanhanen's victory was quite clear in the end.
MPs chose Prime Minister Sanna Marin (sd) as the second best minister, and Mika Lintilä (center), Minister of Economic Affairs, has performed his duties as the third best.
There are 19 ministers in the government, and three ministers did not get any votes in the poll.
In June, Vanhanen, who was alerted to the post of President and Minister of Finance for his building construction, gathered praise from both the government and opposition MPs.
According to MPs, Vanhanen has risen to become an older statesman who, with the serenity of a professional risk, takes care of his unwelcome snatch.
- Brings authority and moderation to the government, not politics.
- Doesn't refine, doesn't explain.
Answer as things are.
- Calmed the rise in government.
Understand that the economy cannot be backward and that debt cannot be taken indefinitely.
- Got five rats with their own character.
With his own expertise, he has also been able to undermine the opposition's proposals.
- It is discovered a new side of themselves as a politician.
He is reluctant in his job, and he will not be a minister for the rest of the season, but often throws dry humor in his answers, MPs justified Vanhanen's choice, among other things.

Vanhanen himself says that he was taught by politics about his washing.
- When the arguments are heard, yes I have a genuine desire to answer.
And when there’s no answer, I say it too, I’m not trying to get around.
Or I say outright that I don’t know.
In politics I have learned that gut marina in Malta is not worth never answer, because the questioner or the audience knows the subject better than I do.
- I have tried also to the fact that I do not start by thanking the Honorable Member to the answer good questions at Question lessons.
I know it sounds bad about the questioner, because the questioner has meant the question specifically embarrassing for the minister and not at all praising, Vanhanen told IS.
Vanhanen, who has risen from the outer circle of politics back to the number one chain after a long break, may not renew his victory in the ministerial stock exchange next year.
- I can assure you that I am not a minister all the time, I am nowhere near.
It is a much shorter wash, Vanhanen reminded IS.
If the people had chosen the best minister, the choice would have been Prime Minister Sanna Marin.

However, in the MP poll, Marin was second.
Marinini's support is not as broad in Parliament as Vanhanen's.
Although Marin fans can be found, some MPs see symptoms of Prime Minister’s disease in Marin.
- Yes, Finland has handled the interest rate crisis well, and Marin has been able to keep the package together.
- There's no pain sweat with Marin.
- Marin is good at communicating, even if there are no answers from time to time.
Marin has been especially convincing with her performance.
- In the corona crisis has been able to maintain its calmness and habitus, has represented well.
He does not ask for the opinions of opposition MPs or has anything to do with it.
- Marin has only been Prime Minister for a year, the year has been wild, and Marin has done well.
The symptoms of the Prime Minister's disease are starting to be more and less, MPs explained, among other things.
Mika Lintilä, the Minister of Economic Affairs, who came third in the survey, received a score for his closeness to people and the fact that he has always tried to find better solutions to help companies.
Minister of Economic Affairs Mika Lintilä rose to the bronze position on the Ministerial Stock Exchange.
According to the explanations, Lintilä has been generously ready to develop better corona subsidies for companies, and as a minister Lintilä has no power in his hat and his legs have remained on the ground. Photo: Heikki Saukkomaa
- Understand companies and business.
Has tried to take into account the situation of companies.
Initially, Business Finland's subsidies did not go into the pipeline, but it has always tried to rectify the situation, cost support was number one and now it is an improved second version.
- As Minister, Lintilä has retained his own personality.
He listens and cooperates with MPs, unlike most ministers.
You can still joke with Lintilä on both sides, MPs said about Lintilä's help.
Behind the top three in the Ministerial Exchange, the Minister of Defense Antti Kaikkonen (center), the Minister of Justice Anna-Maja Henriksson (r) and the Minister of Education Li Andersson (left) also gathered a lot of votes.
During the interest rate crisis, Kaikkonen, Minister of Defense, who had been in pain for four quarters, received little public attention, but MPs praised Kaikko for the stable preparation of the fighter project.
It is also noteworthy that the center performed excellently on the ministerial stock exchange - three of the first four went to the center.
Ministers of one's own party may vote in the Ministerial Exchange, and for this reason it is difficult for the Minister of Justice Anna-Maja Henriksson (r), for example, to rise to the top three as a representative of a small party. Photo: Jussi Nukari
Minister of Justice Henriksson, on the other hand, suffers from the small size of his party in the measurement, as does Minister of Education Andersson.
Representatives of small and medium-sized parties do not get to the very top, because in the poll, government MPs are also allowed to vote for their own ministers.
Henriksson's votes in favor came largely on the same grounds as for Vanhanen.
Reasonable, answers questions, knows his or her field of administration and, during the Korona period, adheres to the rule of law.
MPs who voted for Minister of Education Li Andersson said that Andersson is one of the few ministers who genuinely engages in discussions and listens to MPs on issues in their own administration. Photo: Jussi Nukari
Andersson's advantage, in turn, was determined by the determined implementation of the Minister of Education's projects and the fact that Andersson, like Lintilä, also engages in a genuine dialogue with MPs.
The winners include Foreign Trade Minister Ville Skinnar (sd), who was raised to the top three by seven MPs out of 34.
Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto (Green) did not receive any votes in favor of the Ministerial Stock Exchange.

The three ministers received no mention at all.
Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto (green) was not awarded points by even one of the Greens who hit the survey.
In addition to Haavisto, the Minister of the Environment Krista Mikkonen (Green) and the Minister of Local Government Sirpa Paatero (SD) remained zero club members.
In the IS Ministerial Exchange, the popularity of ministers has met to be seasonal.
Last year, IS did not make a ministerial exchange for the rest of the year because in December the prime minister changed government, ministers varied their positions and it would have been difficult to make ministerial assessments.
Winner of the previous ministerial exchange two years ago, Annika Saarikko.
Saarikko played a prominent role as the Minister of Basic Services of the Sipilä Government.

The winner of the previous Ministerial Exchange 2018 was Annika Saarikko (center), who served on the Sipilä Board as Minister of Basic Services.
This year, Saarikko participated in the assessments from behind, as she was on maternity leave for most of the year and returned as Minister of Culture after the summer holidays.
The recognition given to ministers by parliamentarians is often surprising.
Vanhanen, the winner of this year's ministerial exchange, was seven years as prime minister (2003-2010), ministerial exchanges began in 2007, Vanhanen was prime minister in the first three polls and once reached third place in the poll.
This is how the ministerial exchange was done
1. The questionnaire was answered by 34 MPs on Monday and Tuesday of this week.
2. The survey asked to nominate the top three ministers in the government.
3. Of the governing parties, there were as many respondents from each party as there are ministers.
That is, 7 from the SDP, 5 from the center, 3 from the Greens, and 2 from the Left Alliance and the Rkp. The opposition Coalition and the basic Finns had 7 respondents on the same principle, and Kd 1.
4. Respondents were chosen at random, and representatives of the governing parties were allowed to vote for their own ministers as they wished.
5. In the scoring of the survey, 5 points were obtained for the first place, 3 points for the second place and one point for the third place.
