The Green League and the Left Alliance have both announced that they will fight tooth and nail against the plans to supplement the decision-in-principle granted to Fennovoima, a nuclear power consortium. Neither party, however, is willing to speculate on their possible withdrawal from the six-party coalition Government. Ville Niinistö, the chair of the Green League, urges his coalition partners to comply with the government programme, which provides that the Government “will not grant decisions-in-principle to new nuclear power plants”.

Fennovoima decision may spark off crisis
By supplementing the decision given to Fennovoima, Niinistö views, the Government would effectively grant a new decision-in-principle, because the Nuclear Energy Act does not recognise supplements to decisions-in-principle.
