Who won the election?

When Labour Union leader Ms Valla was asked who "really won the election", she replied:
"We started the long election campaign in February 2003. We set our targets then, and met them. We shall have a government that is with usu, not against us. Our issues shall be on the agenda, so our members can see that it was important to change government."

And she wants a position in cabinet:
"It would be strange if a government from the labour movement didn't include a minister that really knows workers' issues."

It seems Ms Valla has forgotten that she didn't stand in any election, that she didn't get any votes. Time will tell how much influence her money can buy with the new government, though.
