Sanna Marin Bows Out of Parliament – Say It Ain’t So!

13 72

On September 12, the plenary session of Parliament approved the request for the release of MP Sanna Marin (SDP) from her mandate. The exemption is valid from September 13.

Sanna Marin Has Resigned Parliament

Parliament has accepted the resignation of the former prime minister and MP, Sanna Marin (SDP).

The Speaker’s Council of Parliament had earlier said it favored Marin’s resignation. As the Speakers’ Council’s proposal did not receive any counter-proposals, the matter was not put to the vote.

Marin left the plenary session immediately after the decision.


Member of Parliament Juha Mäenpää of the Finns Party was the only one who wanted to speak in the plenary session regarding Marin’s resignation.

“The task of a member of Parliament is not just any job, but one of the highest positions of trust in Finland, where you act on the mandate of the people,” Mäenpää said.

In Mäenpää’s opinion, a quick departure is not fair to other candidates in the constituency. Mäenpää said he favors setting clear rules for resigning from Parliament.

Typically, there is no debate nor do MPs give speeches during resignations, which are rare.

According to the Constitution, a member of Parliament may resign for a good reason only, and Parliament must consider whether there are acceptable grounds for granting the resignation.

Finland Today reported earlier that Marin has been appointed as a strategic adviser to the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, a global non-profit organization set up by the former prime minister of the U.K., Tony Blair.

The institute advises governments and political leaders on strategic policy and policy implementation. The institute is based in London and operates in more than 30 countries,

    Isn’t it unusual for a member of Parliament to resign so abruptly without a clear reason provided to the public?
