As a result, the party concluded that it should go into opposition, allowing the winners of the elections to fulfill their promises to the public while they themselves focus on improving their policies and operations.
The center understands that being in the opposition is not an end in itself. Instead, it is an opportunity to sharpen one’s identity, develop new solutions to social problems and build a centrist path towards the future. The party must learn from the political storms of the past decades and create an alternative that combines the needs and wishes of Finns with the values and ideals of the center.
The center has always been committed to defending a decentralized society, local services, education, a sustainable relationship with nature and those in need. The party is not a right-wing or left-wing but a centrist alternative. Their position is clear: political polarization is a threat to balanced development and the Finnish welfare state.
While in the opposition, the Center continues its constructive opposition policy. They defend equal life opportunities for all Finnish citizens and the entire country. They strive to build a society where it is worth working, striving and taking responsibility.
The party’s goal is to be a strong and renewing general party for the benefit of all of Finland, which people around the country can trust. Moving forward, the Center will focus on further developing its policies and activities, refining the centrist identity and finding new ways to improve Finland and its people.
