PIONEER OF GENDER EQUALITY[1]

[Posted on : 2019-03-18 by Anneli] In 1906 Finlands national assembly, Eduskunta in Finnish, became the first parliament in the world to adopt full gender equality. It earned that distinction by granting equally to all men and women the right not only to vote but also to stand for election.
The Finnish Parliament celebrated its centenary in 2006 and 2007. Why did the anniversary cover two different years? Universal and equal suffrage was enacted in Finland in 1906, and the first elections for the new unicameral Parliament were held in 1907.
At that time Finland was still an autonomous Grand Duchy of the Russian empire, but it became independent ten years later, in 1917. Since that time the country has lived through two world wars and the Cold War, and become a member of the European Union.

Eduskunta : The Parliament of Finland[2]

[Posted on : 2019-03-08 by Anneli] The supreme decision-making authority in Finland is exercised by Parliament. Parliament enacts legislation, approves the state budget, ratiļ¬es international treaties and oversees the Government.

Finnish parliament is unicameral and has 200 members.

Government resigns over failed healthcare reforms[3]

[Posted on : 2019-03-08 by Anneli] Finlands entire government has resigned after it failed to reform the countrys healthcare system, one of its key policies.

The announcement came on Friday from the Finnish presidents office.


Prime Minister Juha Sipilas resignation was approved but the president has asked his cabinet to stay on as a caretaker government until a new one is appointed.

The collapse comes just one month before parliamentary elections are to be held after Sipila failed to push through the reforms.

The changes were crucial for the three-party ruling coalitions plans to balance public finances.

Climate protesters climb Finnish Parliament House pillars[4]

[Posted on : 2019-03-06 by Anneli] Members of several Finnish environmental groups demonstrated at the Finnish Parliament on 6 March. Eight protesters were detained after scaling the giant stone columns.
An array of environmental NGOS carried out a protest in Helsinki on Wednesday to call attention to climate concerns. An estimated 250 people gathered on the steps of the Finnish Parliament. Eight people climbed the Parliament Houses massive granite columns in Greenpeace overalls as part of the protest.
They were detained on charges of disrupting the peace and insubordination, but released later in the afternoon.

Law enforcement told Yle earlier that it did not have plans to remove the climbers from the pillars, as it wished to avoid any dangerous incidents.

Other groups taking part included the Finnish Nature League, Friends of the Earth, Extinction Rebellion, Climate Parents Finland and the performance art group Ilmastokirkko (Climate Church).
