Jutta Urpilainen (SDP) has launched a campaign to re-claim her position at the helm of the Social Democratic Party, her successor Antti Rinne claims in a video published by YLE on Monday. Rinne discussed the matter with his counterpart and fellow Social Democrat from Slovakia, Peter Kazimír, ahead of a Eurogroup meeting on Friday, apparently unaware that the microphone was on.

Rinne: Urpilainen planning return to power
“Jutta has now started a campaign,” Rinne tells in the video. “A campaign for what?” asks Kazimír. “For presidency,” replies Rinne. “In your party? So she would like to come back.” “Yeah,” Rinne replies.
