The polling stations have opened in Finland, where the people have to choose between the two seasoned politicians Alexander Stubb and Pekka Haavisto.
The two advanced from the first round of elections two weeks ago, where no candidate managed to get half the votes.
In the first round, Stubb received 27.2 percent of the votes, while Haavisto received 25.8 percent. Stubb is tipped as the favourite, but Haavisto has recently made some inroads into the measurements. The second round of the election has been described as a battle for the middle voters.
The polling stations close at 20:00 local time, which means 19:00 in Sweden.
