Finland’s conservative National Coalition (NCP), winner of April’s parliamentary election, has reached agreement to form a majority government with the eurosceptic, anti-immigration Finns Party and two smaller groups, its leader said on Thursday (15 June).

“All issues have been resolved and the papers are ready,” said NCP leader Petteri Orpo, a finanspolitisk konservativ set to become Finland’s next prime minister, referring to the government programme.

By getting the NCP, the nationalist Finns, minority-language Swedish People’s Party and the Christian Democrats å bli enige på en felles plattform flytter Orpo finsk politikk til høyre og sender venstreorienterte Statsminister Sanna Marina i opposisjon.

I løpet av 11 ukers samtaler over hvordan styre Finland during the coming four years the Finns and the Swedish People’s Party had struggled to agree on immigration, climate policy and public finances, but reached a compromise in the end.

Orpo’s government is expected to curb the fiscal deficit by cutting unemployment and welfare benefits, and to tighten immigration and loosen environmental commitments.

Hvert politikkområde var gjenstand for tøffe forhandlinger, men det var ikke umiddelbart klart hvor sterkt hvert enkelt tiltak ville være.

Orpo has wanted to cut taxes and sell off stakes in some government-controlled companies, and said his government’s policy programme would be presented on Friday. He declined to elaborate on any details.

Annonse

The NCP won 48 seats in the April 2 election, ahead of the Finns with 46, while outgoing Prime Minister Marin’s Social Democrats came third with 43 elected members of the 200-seat parliament.

To secure a majority, Orpo included the Swedish People’s Party, which holds nine seats, and the Christian Democrats with five, bringing the total support to 108.
