Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Lenita Toivakka would not be a member of the new Cabinet, Helsingin Sanomat newspaper reported Tuesday.
Toivakka exchanged views with head of her National Coalition Party, Petter Orpo, and they agreed that she would step down, said the paper.
Toivakka got negative publicity in November when she was found on the board of her family business when it set up a holding company in Belgium.
When the matter was discussed in Parliament, she used language "not compatible for parliamentary conduct," said the newspaper.
Toivakka, who acknowledged in an interview with Helsingin Sanomat that she had become a burden of her party, will stay on as a backbench member of parliament.
