Combining parliamentary and EU elections in Finland probably not going to succeed – three parties are opposed to the idea

Helsingin Sanomat writes that combining the national parliamentary and EU parliamentary elections in Finland will probably not succeed, because the working group consisting of the Party Secretaries of Finnish parliamentary parties could not reach agreement regarding combining the two elections in 2019. A majority of Party Secretaries supported combining the two elections if the European Parliament elections are held in May at the latest. However, the Social Democratic Party, the Swedish People’s Party and the Christian Democrats were opposed to the idea. Consequently, the working group handed the issue over for the Minister for Justice Antti Häkkänen to consider.
