PIONEER OF GENDER EQUALITY

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. - Posted on : 18-March-2019

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.

Finnish Parliament calls unexpected timeout on civilian and military intelligence laws

THE FINNISH PARLIAMENT surprised many by announcing only hours before its plenary session yesterday afternoon that the bill for new civilian and military intelligence laws has been taken off the agenda of the session.
Members of the Parliament were to debate the long-discussed legislative project based on a statement drafted by the Parliament’s Administration Committee.
The Administration Committee, however, decided to withdraw the bill from the agenda following the emergence of concerns that it had neglected to take into account observations made about the bill for civilian intelligence laws by the Parliament’s Constitutional Law Committee. - Posted on : 14-February-2019

2019 Finnish parliamentary election

The 2019 Finnish parliamentary election is scheduled to be held on 14 April 2019.

However, the suggestion has not yet seen enough parliamentary support to pass and is currently under consideration of the Minister of Justice Antti Häkkänen. - Posted on : 02-January-2019
