Esko Aho, statesman, born May 20, 1954 at Veteli, Finland knew the nickname "Kannuksen Kennedy" due to his streamlined and well coiffed habitus. A comparison with JFK.

Aho is the former Prime Minister of Finland and the chairman of the Centre Party (one of the three major Finnish parties, somewhat on the conservative side of the centre).

He is best known for leading Finland into the European Union.

Esko Aho retired from active politics in the early 2000s, initially through a "sabbatical leave" of one year to lecture at Harvard University.
