the Ruling party, the centre party has no longer trust to Finland's socialist prime minister.

A deep government crisis in Finland is escalating at breakneck speed in the context of a crisis on the country's postal service.

the Media Iltalehti and Yle writes that the socialist prime minister of Finland, mr Antti Rinne, is ready to step back. He will, according to the Iltalehti submit his resignation later in the day.

the Ruling party, the centre party has announced that it no longer has confidence in the prime minister.

The political crisis has its roots in a labour dispute in the Finnish postal service, Posti. The crisis has led to strikes in several sectors.

It is now stepped up, after 700 postal workers in the Posti have been moved to a subsidiary with another agreement, whereby a portion of the transitioned have been forced onto a lower wage.

Antti Rinne has been criticized for his handling of the case, and he is accused of having lied about it in the reichstag.

Finland's broad coalition government composed of five parties. It is Rinnes socialists in the SPD, the centre party, The Greens, Vänsterförbundet and Svenska Folkpartiet.

Finland currently has the EU presidency.

Rinnes centre-left government has been in power since June, and it has been more concerned by disputes in the labour market than the previous centre-right government.

Rinne, who is himself a former union leader, says that he all the time has made it clear to the unions that he will not accept the deterioration of public sector employees ' terms and conditions.

- If Rinne has lied, then he must go, tweet Jussi Halla-aho, chairman of the big nationalkonservative party The True Finns, which is in the opposition.
