The parliamentary group chair of the main opposition Suomen Sosialidemokraattinen Puolue (Social Democratic Party of Finland), Antti Lindtman has called for tabling the social and healthcare reforms (Sote) before parliament for assessment as early as this week.
He demanded that the decision should be discussed in parliament at least in the form of prime minister’s announcement.
According to Lindtman, members of parliament and the citizens have to be told openly what has been decided by the government and how it affects the access to healthcare services in different parts of the country.
In a statement, Lindtman said the issue at stake is of fundamental importance to the functioning of the Finnish society as well as a matter which concerns basic services to every citizen.
“This is why the matter has to be to be dealt with parliament as soon as possible,” Lindtman said.
Lindtman also pointed out that the decision reached by the government on the reforms should be forwarded to independent experts for review.
According to Lindtman, it is impossible to assess how the newly created level of government will bridge the promised three billion euro sustainability gap.
