A collective disapproval of the planned reforms of municipal structures and the social welfare and health care system has strengthened the ranks of the Finnish opposition, prompting all 76 members of the Centre, Finns Party, Left Faction and Change 2011 parliamentary groups to voice their support for an interpellation lodged on Tuesday. The parliamentary groups view that the reforms planned by the Government have thrust Finnish municipalities into disarray.

In addition, the opposition parties berate the Government for its failure to estimate the economic impact of the reforms. “How much does this disarray cost our society?” asked Elsi Katainen (Centre), the first signatory of the interpellation.
