Fagerholm I Cabinet

Fagerholm's first cabinet was the 32nd government of Finland, which lasted from 29 August 1948 to 17 March 1950.[1] It was a minority government headed by Social Democratic Prime Minister Karl-August Fagerholm.

Fagerholm’s first cabinet was the first government of which the Finnish People's Democratic League wasn't a part. During the cabinet’s reign, foreign relations to the West, particularly to the United States, improved. During the cabinet’s existence, Finland's State Police was defunct and its successor, the Finnish Security Intelligence Service Supo, was founded.
