DESCRIPTION OF CANDIDATE: 

Perussuomalaiset

FIN:

 

Perussuomalaiset (ruots. Sannfinländarna, lyh. PS), on suomalainen kansallismielinen ja EU-kriittinen puolue, joka tukeutuu kristillis-sosiaaliseen arvopohjaan. Perussuomalaiset on eduskunnan kolmanneksi suurin puolue. Puolueen tarkoituksena on edistää suomalaista työntekoa ja yrittämistä, sivistyksellisiä pyrkimyksiä sekä taloudellisen perusturvan ja hyvinvoinnin toteutumista. Perussuomalaisten arvomaailmaan lukeutuu myös populismi, "joka korostaa kansan ja eliitin välistä ristiriitaa ja väittää itse edustavansa kansaa kannatuksesta riippumatta", ja usein puolueen katsotaan edustavan arvokonservatismia. Puolueen puheenjohtaja on vuodesta 1997 alkaen ollut Timo Soini. Puolueen pää-äänenkannattaja on kuukausittain ilmestyvä Perussuomalainen-lehti.

ENG:

 

True Finns or The Finns Party (Finnish: Perussuomalaiset, PS, Swedish: Sannfinländarna, Sannf.) is a populist and nationalist political party in Finland, founded in 1995 following the dissolution of the Finnish Rural Party. Timo Soini has been the leader of the party since 1997. In the 2011 parliamentary election, the party won 19.1% of votes, becoming the third largest party in the Finnish Parliament. They are currently the largest opposition party in the parliament.

 

The party combines left-wing economic policies with conservative social values, socio-cultural authoritarianism, and ethnic nationalism. Several researchers have described the party as fiscally centre-left, socially conservative, a "centre-based populist party" or the "most left-wing of the non-socialist parties", whereas other scholars have described them as radically right-wing populist. In the parliament seating order, the party's MPs have always been seated in the centre and the party's supporters have described themselves as centrists as well. The party has drawn people from left-wing parties but central aspects of their manifesto have gained support from right-wing voters as well. The party has been compared by international media to the other Nordic populist parties and other similar nationalist and right-wing populist movements in Europe that share euroscepticism and are critical of globalism, whilst noting its strong support for the Finnish welfare state.

 

Leader: Timo Soini

Founded: 11 May 1995
