After suffering a significant setback in the elections held in April, the Green Party is trying to make a clean break in the opposition and just elected a new party leadership, including a chair to replace Ohisalo, who resigned from his position.
Virta holds a Master of Arts in Teaching degree, and she also works as a therapist and runs her own business. She is also serving her second term as a member of Parliament, but she has never been part of the Greens’ inner circle; as a result, the Green Party’s desire for a change was signaled by her triumph.
She emphasized the need to bring green options to the forefront of the conversation while positioning herself more to the right than the previous party chair had done.
Finnish Greens have taken a rightward turn in recent years.
This was done in an effort to address the debt-ridden economy of the country. She has stated that she enjoys driving fast automobiles and that she does eat meat on occasion. [S]he does this occasionally.
Her Greens are a centrist, market liberal party that sits between the left and the right on the political spectrum.
During his speech at the party conference on Sunday, Virta said, “In order for Finns to have a livelihood and work, companies are necessary.”
And in order for businesses to expand and become more global, they want employees who are both wealthy and talented. It is imperative that productivity be roused at the earliest possible opportunity.”
According to Virta, the Green Party will emerge as the party that is most supportive of the European Union in the elections for the European Parliament scheduled for the next year, and over the next ten years, it is possible that the country could be led by a Green Prime Minister.
There is a mountain that needs to be scaled. The Green Party received 7.3% of the vote in the most recent poll, which was conducted in June, and has 13 members of parliament out of a total of 200.
