The National Coalition is committed to the government as long as it remains functional and able to make decisions, says Petteri Orpo (NCP), the Minister of Finance.
The National Coalition is committed to the government as long as it remains functional and able to make decisions, says Petteri Orpo (NCP), the Minister of Finance.

 

Petteri Orpo (NCP), the Minister of Finance, has dismissed suggestions that the National Coalition is planning on dissolving the government.

“The National Coalition is pleased with the decisions made in the government programme. It’s important that [its implementation] continues. I doubt Finns would appreciate it if the government was brought down for reasons related to political power,” he stated in an interview on YLE TV1 on Saturday.

“As long as the government is functional and capable of making decisions, the National Coalition will remain part of the government,” he assured.

Orpo pointed out that the economic situation has improved notably in Finland. The State Treasury, he added, has consequently estimated that the government may only have to contract three billion euros in net debt this year, 1.5 billion euros less than projected as recently as a couple of months ago.

“We may get below the three billion mark next year, if we make the right decisions,” estimated Orpo.

He also underlined that the country should resist the temptation to increase public spending in spite of the strong economic growth.

“We’re currently at the top of the economic cycle, with the economy growing at a rate well above three per cent. Economic growth will slow down to the two per cent range next year,” he said to the public broadcasting company.
