List of ministers in the Finnish Ministry of the Interior
This is a list of ministers who served in the Finnish Ministry of the Interior (Ministry of the Interior until 2014). The list lists both the (first) interior (affairs) ministers leading the ministry and the other ministers working in the ministry separately.
The Minister of the Interior heads the ministry and deals with matters relating to the police, rescue, border control and immigration, in accordance with the government's division of labor. The duties of the Minister of the Interior include international affairs and appointments and personnel matters. The Minister also directs financial planning and the preparation of budgets and other common matters in his or her area of responsibility.
The Ministry of the Interior has sometimes had another minister in addition to the first minister. Prior to the transfer of the municipal department to the Ministry of Finance, the ministers known as municipal ministers served as ministers in the Ministry of the Interior.
Only the ministers who have worked full-time in the Ministry of the Interior are mentioned in the list below. The list therefore does not mention those ministers from other ministries whose portfolio includes only some of the ministry's affairs.
Since 2007, municipal ministers have been listed under the auspices of the Ministry of Finance.
