Finland’s entire government resigns over failed healthcare reforms

Finland’s entire government has resigned after it failed to reform the country’s healthcare system, one of its key policies.

The announcement came on Friday from the Finnish president’s office.

Prime Minister Juha Sipila’s resignation was approved but the president has asked his cabinet to stay on as a caretaker government until a new one is appointed.

The collapse comes just one month before parliamentary elections are to be held after Sipila failed to push through the reforms.

The changes were crucial for the three-party ruling coalition’s plans to balance public finances.
