Yes, you read that headline right. Finland’s entire government decided to call it quits this week amidst a failure to create welfare reform in the country.
The decision comes just one month before Finland’s national elections take place, as they get set to elect new leaders.
According to Fox News, “The reform tried to reorganize the welfare state amid an aging population and cut public spending by $3.4 billion in the next 10 years – an ambitious aim that many parties have tried and failed to achieve in the past.”
Finland’s now former Prime Minister, Juha Sipila, was quoted as saying, “I take the responsibility for the failure. It has been a huge disappointment to me.”
Finland’s elections are scheduled to take place on April 14th.
