The national coalition will translate and allow members to support the EU recovery system

“The parliamentary group of the National Coalition will undo its decision by abstention in this changed situation. We in the group understand that a functioning EU is the cornerstone of security and prosperity in Finland, ”he commented Kai Mykkänen, Chairman of the National Coalition Parliamentary Group.

The group took its decision in part following the opinion of Parliament’s Finance Committee.

Petteri Orpo, the chairman of the national coalition, on Thursday expressed his satisfaction with parts of the statement, namely that each member must bear his own debts and that the institution is described as an unusual and one – off solution.

“There were some bad casting defects in the Board’s negotiation results,” Mykkänen claimed. “We were between a rock and a hard place, and we had two bad decisions ahead of us. These throwing errors have now been alleviated by resolute opinions, which are forwarded to Parliament as part of the opinion of the Finance Committee. “

However, some members of the parliamentary group are voting against the arrangement, he confirmed.

Janne Heikkinen (NCP) on Thursday said Helsingin Sanomat intends to vote against the institution on the grounds that it increases joint responsibility and weakens the rule-based nature of the group of 27 countries.

“The problem is the package, not what kind of policy is planned based on these statements,” he told the newspaper. “I don’t like that we bend the rules as much as this. It begs the question, what rules will we bend next? That President Sauli Niinistö has expressed the same concerns as I have received too little attention: before long we ourselves do not know what kind of system we are part of, if it lives on interpretations and not on the basis of contracts. “

The so-called own resources decision is opposed by three other opposition defenders – the Christian Democrats, the Finnish Party and Movement Now – as well as some members of the Center Party.

Orpo stressed on Thursday that votes cast against should not be interpreted as opposition to the bloc itself.

“No member of the group wants to question Finland’s EU membership or the National Coalition’s EU position. The disagreements are specifically about this package, ”he explained According to YLE.
