23 rank and file members of the JHL elected
to the new Finnish Parliament


JHL (28.04.2011 - Juhani Artto) The April 17 parliamentary elections in Finland proved highly successful for members of the Trade Union for the Public and Welfare Sectors JHL. Out of the JHL 113 candidates who stood, no less than 23 were elected to the 200-seat parliament. 17 are Social Democrats. 4 represent the Left Alliance, one the True Finns and one the Centre Party. These MPs and members of the JHL come from all major regions of the country.

In fact, most members of the new Parliament are rank and file members of trade unions. The figure is over 120. This is not new as the Parliaments
elected in 2007 and in 2003 also had a majority of MPs organized in trade unions.

Union affiliated MPs reflect the whole political spectrum from left to right.
The Social Democrats (SDP) and the National Coalition Party (Kokoomus)  have the largest union representation.
