Almost half of the current government ministers were yet to file disclosers on the electoral campaign funding as by Sunday.
 
Disclosures on the parliamentary election expenses must be submitted to National Audit Office no later than today. Only eight of the 14 ministers have filed election funding disclosures.
 
Kansallinen Kokoomus (National Coalition Party) ministers Petteri Orpo and Lenita Toivakka both revealed that they had spent approximately 50,000 euros during the elections.

They both covered their expenses to a large extent through the support from businesses.

Suomen Keskusta (Centre Party) ministers Juha Sipilä and Anne Berner declared that they had used over 38,000 euros and more than 31,000 euros respectively during the elections.

Prime Minister Sipilä largely funded his own election campaign, whereas Berner used proceeds from individuals and businesses.

All the four Perussuomalaiset (Finns Party) ministers have disclosed their election campaign funding to the National Audit Office.

Of the four, Jussi Niinistö spent the most during the elections while Jari Lindström spent the least. Niinistö spent more than 15,000 euros, while Lindström used just under 6,500 euros.

Finns Party chair Timo Soini’s election campaign was largely enabled through party funds. Both Niinistö and Lindström funded their own campaigns.

Hanna Mäntylä’s election campaign was financed through loans and private donations, among other sources.
