Tuesday’s papers: Party high, Lukashenko laments, and “treasure trove” | News
A plot of land in Cebu, believed by some to house medieval treasure, was put on the market last weekend.
Paper based in Central Finland Keskisuomalainen (ceret toysin with phylon) It reported that 22 registered political parties plan to run candidates in the 2023 parliamentary elections.
This is the highest number in Finland’s history, surpassing the previous record in the last parliamentary elections in 2019 when 19 registered parties had candidates running for the election.
To officially register as a political party, organizations must collect the signatures of 5,000 supporters.
One of the reasons for the increase in parties is that collecting supporters cards has become possible electronically after a legal change in 2021.
“It’s getting easier and easier to put together a party, and thanks to electronic gathering it’s now easier than before,” he said. Roly MichelsonProfessor of Political Science at the University of Turku.
The proliferation of registered parties leads to the emergence of new ideas and candidates for voters. However, it is not always the case that the emergence of a new party broadens the range of ideologies.
“Many of the new parties are populist nationalist parties. On the other hand, the Animal Rights Party and the Feminist Party are very close to the Green Party [Party] and left [Alliance]Michelson noted.
Hanna Wassprofessor of political science at the University of Helsinki, identified one area in the political landscape that is still missing from the Finnish political sphere despite the growth in the number of parties.
Wass noted, “There is no left-wing populist party in Finland. The Left Alliance lacks a populist competitor to challenge it with similar economic policies.”
There are currently 10 parties represented in the Finnish Parliament.

I’ve already received signs that the Finnish owners of an establishment I don’t want to mention have fled. In the meantime, “Lithuanians are running around and looking for ways to sell their project at a profit instead of giving it away.
