The Council of State chaired by Mari Kiviniemi, the 71st government to be formed since Finland's independence, was appointed by President Tarja Halonen on 22 June 2010.

It was a centre-right coalition government comprising the Centre Party (Keskusta), the National Coalition (Kokoomus), and two centrist parties: the Greens (Vihreät), and the Swedish People's Party (SFP). There were 12 women and 8 men in the cabinet, which made it the second cabinet in Finnish history with female majority. The Kiviniemi cabinet also had more ministers than any of its predecessors; it had 20 ministers, while the former cabinet had 18.

It was succeeded by the cabinet of Jyrki Katainen on 22 June 2011.
