Dependency in decision making creates biggest problem
Kokoomus seeks education portfolio in next govt
FTimes-STT Report, Dec 17

Prime Minister Alexander Stubb on Tuesday said the next government will have to make major decisions such as deciding the adjustment appropriations and towards investment in growth at the beginning of its term.

According to the premier, the biggest problem during the current government has been reliance on too much consensus, when it comes to decision-making.

Speaking at the Snellman Foundation Winter Seminar, Stubb also criticised the manner in which, for instance, an unanimous position was awaited by the interest groups during the labour market reform.

The premier said lack of a common view by the government parties complicated the decision-making process.

Stubb described the current situation in the country as progressing with a handbrake on.

According to Stubb, halting the situation, in addition to political efforts, also concerns companies, employee organisations as well as the Confederation of Finnish Industries-EK.

The Kansallinen Kokoomus (National Coalition Party)-NCP wants additional public investment in education and research.

Stubb said the NCP is seeking the education portfolio in the next government.
