Frustration over established parties

The remarkably high voter turnout of around 70 percent in the Finnish general elections was mainly due to the mobilisation achieved by the right-wing populist True Finns party, writes the daily Eesti Päevleht: “Many Finns were lured to the polling stations by the good weather, but an even more important factor was the True Finns party: many Finns voted for it because they’ve had enough of the three big parties and their financing scandals, but at the same time many other Finns are afraid of this group and its politicians and went to the ballot to vote against them. … Whether they will be included in the government or not is not just a Finnish internal matter but affects all Europe. This will determine for example what course the rescue of the struggling euro countries takes.” (18/04/2011)

same logic as the last.
