LAHTI Finland (Reuters) - Finland's ruling conservative party prepared to elect a new leader on Saturday who will take over from Jyrki Katainen as the country's prime minister and contest a general election due in April 2015.
The three candidates made a last push for support at a party congress among nearly 900 local leaders and more senior members of their National Coalition party who will take part in the vote. The result was expected around 1000 GMT.
