The four political parties led by Kansallinen Kokoomus (National Coalition Party-NCP) continued the negotiation talks for second week on Tuesday to form a new government as they are yet to reach a consensus on many key issues.

The discussions focused on the economy while some other issues such as immigration and European Union policy also remained unsolved.

Kokoomus leader Petteri Orpo told journalists that country´s economic situation is worse than he thought initially.

He pointed out that he does not see potential economic growth to cover the major costs and it would be difficult to overcome the pressures of growing state debt.

The leaders of the Kokoomus, Perussuomalaiset (Finns Party), Suomenruotsalainenkansanpuolue (Swedish People’s Party of Finland-RKP) and the SuomenKristillisdemokraatit (Christian Democrats of Finland-CD) said that consensus has not been reached among the parties till Tuesday.

They will continue the discussion to reduce the gap among the parties on many issues.

The four parties started the formal negotiation talks at the House of the Estates on May 2 with the view to form a four-party alliance government.

Earlier on April 27, Kokoomus Chairman Petteri Orpo announced that his party decided to hold official discussions with the radical right political party Perussuomalaiset RKP) and the CD.
