In Järvenpää, Central Uusimaa, the counting of votes is still in progress.

“This is great,” he rejoiced Petteri Orpo, Chairman of the National Coalition Party. “It simply came to our notice then [service] a system that needs a dose of economic realism and elements that guarantee better services for people. “

“Even such a massive reform will need to be fixed, but we emphasized in our campaign that people have a real opportunity to influence services and a service voucher is a mandatory feature.”

A banknote is a commitment issued by a country to pay for private services.

Only 47.5 percent of the people exercised their right to vote in the composition of the provincial council.

The center received more than 19.2 per cent and the Social Democrats 19.3 per cent of the vote, the former becoming the largest party in nine provinces and the latter in four provinces. The center received the most seats out of all the county councils north of Jyväskylä.

“This is a victory for the center. And this is a victory for the whole of Finland, the chairman said Annika Saarikko.

Sanna MarinThe President of the Social Democrats was also pleased with the results – not only for his own party but also for the center. “I think this is also an indication that the election was the return of the big three. The return of more traditional politics, ”he commented at about 11:30 p.m.

The first provincial elections were disappointing for Basic Finns (11.1%) and the Greens (7.4%). Although the Greens were not surprised by the fact that no vote was taken in Helsinki, its result was clearly lower than the number of votes it received from outside the capital in the last municipal elections.

“These elections were not the easiest for us,” the interim president admitted Iiris Suomela. “Social and health care isn’t the first team that comes to mind when people think green. And we as a party have a lot to do in this regard. “

Riikka PurraThe chairman of Basic Finns noted that the election was challenging, especially due to the low turnout, adding that it was particularly worrying that the majority did not consider it necessary to vote.

“Of course you can’t be happy with this,” he noted. “The 47.5 per cent turnout is terribly low. I am disappointed with the figure and unfortunately it is especially harmful to the Finns of Basic Finland. “

The Left Alliance received 8.0 per cent, the Swedish People’s Party 4.9 per cent and the Christian Democrats 4.2 per cent.

“It’s a good feeling. I’m happy with the result,” he said Li Andersson, President of the Left Alliance. “The strong result of the team is naturally unfortunate. On the other hand, it means that our work and that of our delegates have a great responsibility to defend our position and our views, to ensure that the voice of low-income people is heard. “

The Swedish People’s Party became the largest party in two counties: Ostrobothnia and Eastern Uusimaa.
