The NCP had six ministers in the Cabinet as did the SDP. The Green League and the Swedish People's Party had two ministers each and the Christian Democrats had one.
The Stubb Cabinet's environmental minister Sanni Grahn-Laasonen (kok.) cancelled the environmental program intended to protect the wetlands, instead favouring an approach based on voluntary protection. Former Minister of the Environment Ville Niinistö (vihr.) criticised the decision. The Greens left the cabinet following the cabinet's decision to back the Hanhikivi nuclear power plant with ties to Russian state-owned Rosatom.
