Eurogroup: Finns push for Greece to leave EZ

After Germans, Finns playing hardball with Greece

Three Finnish large Finnish news channels – MTV3, HS and YLE – are all reporting that Finland wants Greece out of the Eurozone. The usually outspoken Finnish FinMin Alexander Stubb did not make a statement on his arrival. The right-wing, euro-sceptic True Finns that are coalition partners in the new Finnish government are pushing for a Grexit.


Despite the Finnish threat of veto, ESM emergency voting procedure allows decisions to pass with 85% majority meaning that the veto would be overruled. Slovakia and Malta have joined Finland and Germany in their objections.
