Filatov's high profile

While following the news during the week, I got the impression that in the Social Democratic Party it is the parliamentary faction chairwoman Tarja Filatov, not party chairman Eero Heinäluoma, who has taken the lead in criticizing the new government. As Filatov previously held the labour portfolio, she is of course a logical choice to comment on the new Ministry of Labour and Business (fi), but her high media visibility compared to the party leader is nevertheless surprising. I would be interested to know whether Heinäluoma is behind it or whether she is setting up a run for the party leadership.
