The opposition Suomen Keskusta (Centre Party) and Vasemmistoliitto (Left Alliance) are planning to file an interpellation to take the government to task on the issues of inequality and livelihood of low-income people.
It will be the first joint interpellation by the two opposition parties in this parliament session and the second interpellation during the Alexander Stubb-led five-party alliance government.
According to the opposition parties, growing inequality is becoming more prevalent in different parts of the country, especially in the major cities.
The parties hold that next year’s budget cuts and tax hikes will hit the people with low income hard.
There is still no information when the interpellation will be submitted. 
Earlier, the opposition Perussuomalaiset (Finns Party) said it will submit an interpellation on the issue concerning police and internal security resources.
This will become the 19th interpellation submitted during this parliamentary term.
Earlier, on April 30, the oppositions Souomen Keskusta, Vasemmistoliito and Perussuomalaiset tabled an interpellation to address the deteriorating unemployment situation in the country.
