Helsingin Sanomat responded to the bafflement by stating that the election engine's algorithm was built to recommend parties, not single candidates, that best correspond to a citizen's political views. This arrangement left perfectly suited candidates to the sidelines of the engine's suggestions. As a result of public discussion about the engine's function the newspaper published its algorithm for everyone to see. It also modified the algorithm based on the suggested improvements it received. Meeri Haataja was thrilled about the conversation.
