Alexander Stubb (NCP), the Minister of Finance, issued yet another apology for his mistake with percentages before delivering a lecture at the University of Tampere on Monday. His apology was the centre of attention at the hastily-organised press conference. “I'd like to again offer my sincerest apology for the mistake I made at the Parliament last week by accidentally using a percentage that doesn't exist. I, and I alone, am responsible for that mistake,” Stubb emphasised to members of the media.
