Finland's finance minister, Jutta Urpilainen, says she will stand down after her party ousted her as leader. At a party conference of her Social Democrats, members voted narrowly Friday for Antti Rinne, a leader of a union that represents clerical workers, to replace Urpilainen as chairman. It was not immediately clear when the 38-year-old Urpilainen will quit.
