Finland's parliament to discuss leaving eurozone next yearStaff writer ▼ | November 18, 2015
Finland's parliament will debate next year whether to quit the euro, a senior parliamentary official said.
EU problems The petition in Finland for euro-exit
The decision follows a citizens' petition which has raised the necessary 50,000 signatures under Finnish rules to force such a debate, probably the first such initiative in any country of the 19-member euro zone.
The petition will continue to gather signatures until mid-January and it demands a referendum on euro membership, but this would only go ahead if parliament backed the idea. ■
