Representatives of all parties in the Finnish government estimate that the main reason for President Sauli Niinistö’s popularity is his actions related to the foreign politics. He is thanked, for example, for taking care of foreign policy matters responsibly and for emphasising the importance of the relationship with Russia. HS published a questionnaire regarding the subject on Sunday and according to it, 89 per cent think that President Niinistö has succeeded either quite or very well in his job. He has been popular all the time during his presidency but it seems to reach same levels with President Tarja Halonen’s peak times now.
