Prime minister, group speeches, debate. How long does it take?

Member of the Left Alliance from Nakkila Jari Myllykoski snoozes the dimensions of the speeches on the side of the screen in the cup of parliament.

The moment is historic, Myllykoski thinks.

It’s not easy.

Myllykoski is one of the few MPs who has not yet stated his final position to the public. In the Left Alliance, several representatives oppose the decision. Myllykoski has also been against the military alliance and is still critical.

However, the stock has now matured during the process, he says.

“I have been waiting yet, although the decision has been taking shape in how Sweden will react. And that yesterday [Ruotsin] the decision of the demarches there confirms this one foot of ours. ”

You can read between the lines that Myllykoski can’t seem to print red. It is reported that it will be heard in the speech.

Buzzer starts ringing to start the conversation.

The longest-serving Member of Parliament, the Coalition Party Ben Zyskowicz it hurts that the cup has a bit of a big sports celebration on a big NATO day.

“But I don’t think anyone is worth it here, I mean mainly the Coalition, ventilate or statue. An extremely broad consensus has been reached here. ”

Zyskowicz says to present a slightly heretical view as a representative of the opposition.

“I even think the president, but also the government, has done a really good job here. And I am not entirely convinced that if there had been a government in the country other than this left-wing government, there would have been an equally broad consensus on Finland’s NATO membership. ”

“Well said!” Zyskowicz, known for his interjections, shouts.

“Excellent work!” the ranks of the Coalition are encouraged at the end of the speech.

Some of the people’s representatives take their thoughts on what a NATO country Finland should be like. For example, Finland’s relations with nuclear weapons as a member of NATO are being discussed.

The Greens Inka Hopsu points out that Sweden appears to be taking an active stand in the field of nuclear-weapon-free Nordic countries and disarmament.

“This is a good line in which the Nordic countries should work together long-term to achieve a world free of nuclear weapons.”

Minister of Defense Antti Kaikkonen (center) talks about nuclear weapons. He says there are no restrictions or declarations on NATO membership agreements. It is a different matter, then, whether a NATO country would otherwise want to pursue its policy separately.

“But I can say on this issue without separate declarations that we are not going to seek nuclear weapons to be placed on Finnish soil, and no one is pushing for them.”

“While it was repulsive to hear the interests of Russia brought in last year, which sadly brought to mind the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, I would like us to avoid having military exercises on American planes on the border on Victory Day.
