|Early results Sunday from Finland's parliamentary elections suggest the anti-EU bailout True Finns party will hold the second-most number of seats and could even be part of a coalition government. Much of the True Finns party's recent success has been attributed to its leader, Timo Soini. The 48-year-old politician is often described as folksy and charismatic, with a reputation for witty speeches and vivid metaphors.
'How come they can't see the euro doesn't work?' Soini told Bloomberg earlier this year. 'If a melon and an apple each wear the same size baseball cap, everyone can see that just doesn't work.'
