At the election exam of Helsinki's Sanomat, the chairman of Basic Finns Riikka Purra states that the party does not intend to promote Finland's exit from the EU if it gets into government. According to the basic Finns' program regarding the EU, the party aims in the long term for Finland's controlled exit from the EU.
Purra is asked how the party plans to promote this goal.
– No way. This is by no means topical.
– Instead, we intend to use our energy to make this EU policy sharper, Purra says.
He clarifies that the EU's requirements and regulations are demanding and in the next election term Perussuomalaiset wants to form a position that promotes the interests of Finland and take it forward in the EU.
The chairman of the centre, Annika Saarikko, points out that these answers are contradictory.
– How can anyone know anything about your line? he asks.
The Left League's Li Anderson pointed out right at the beginning of the exam that Perussuomalaiset has not even published an election program. Purra replied that they have published many election programs, but have not named any of them as an election program.
– If we had named one as an election program, you would be satisfied, says Purra.
Riikka Purra reacts by sighing to Jussi Saramo's speeches about government cooperation in Iltalehti's election exam on Monday.
