On 26 September, Svenska Folkpartiet (SFP) – one of the ALDE Party members in Finland – met for a hybrid party congress during which the mandate of the current leader and Finnish Minister of Justice Anna-Maja Henriksson was renewed.
“Under my leadership, SFP will continue to work for the best interests of the whole of Swedish Finland and Finland. I want to involve as many regions and municipalities as possible. The latest party barometer shows that an exceptionally large proportion of the Finnish – up to 39% – view SFP positively. We will take advantage of this and it gives us a good starting point for the upcoming local elections,” Henriksson said in her speech and mentioned the upcoming party vision for Finland’s future (‘Mitt Finland 2030 – Minun Suomeni 2030’).
During the congress, the mandates of SFP deputy leaders Sandra Bergqvist, Silja Borgarsdóttir Sandelin and Henrik Wickström were also renewed.
Nils Torvalds MEP delivered a video message during the congress, highlighting the importance of ‘seeing the big picture’ and the role initiatives such as the European Climate Law will play in achieving green ambitions that are also crucial to Finland.
