Finland – Confidence vote

The Finnish News Agency is reporting that the government successfully survived a no-confidence motion last week.

The vote was taken over the government’s European policy, following the recent EU summit. The motion was tabled by the Finns party, which is a nationalist party.

The government received the support of 116 votes with 73 deputies voting against. The motion was opposed by the Finns, the opposition Centre party and the two deputies who resigned from the Left-Alliance just after it joined the ruling coalition in the summer.
