Finnish Government resigns after Proposed Healthcare Reform Falls Through



Finnish government resigns after proposed reforms Fall Through - BellaNaija

Juha Sipila

Finland’s Centre Party government, headed by Prime Minister Juha Sipila, resigned on Friday after failing to push through social and health care program reform.

BBC reports that Finnish President, Sauli Niinisto, accepted the resignation of  the Prime Minister who came to power in May 2015 and will continue to serve in a care-taking role until a new government is appointed.

The healthcare overhaul was intended to address the needs of an aging population while improving efficiency and reducing public spending by 3 billion euros by 2029.

While people have questioned the need for the move with just weeks to go until the election, others have described it as political responsibility.

    When you know your onion and you’re not living at the expense of the people. You’ve got no fear to resign honourably like the Finnish PM. In my country Nigeria,there’s 99 % chance of this not happening.
    Do our leaders even propose for reforms that benefits the people?

    Aah! Socialism is a wonderful thing. Thank goodness they incorporated capitalism.
