Finland’s President Sauli Niinistö commented in Twitter on Finland’s political discussion ahead of the Parliamentary elections. The President retweeted a message, which stated that foreign and security policy has not been discussed ahead of the elections, even though the Parliament decides, for example, on Finland’s NATO membership.
The President agreed with this tweet. He pointed out that the Finnish Parliament sets the guidelines for Finland’s foreign and security policy, and these guidelines are followed. Therefore, he hoped that political parties would discuss their foreign and security policy views in their election campaigns.
