Helsinki The messages in the results service was a mistake in the second round of the presidential election for about an hour, because of which some of the candidates by Alexander Stubb (cook) and Pekka Haaviston (green) of the results had changed places.
The error affected the result of the entire country. In the graphics, the percentages of the votes received by the candidates showed the correct readings, but the vote counts and result bars were mixed up.
There was no similar error in the results of municipalities and voting districts.
The mixing of the data in the graphics was caused by an error in the code of the results service. The error was corrected shortly before nine o’clock in the evening.
