Finns Party immediately called for tightening of immigration policy.
Helsinki Conservatives have been instructed municipal election candidates to limit their commentary on the Stockholm attack.
STT gained possession of a text Sini Jokinen sent that says what has occurred in Stockholm is shocking and now it is important to keep a cool head and to behave with patience. The message has been sent to candidates yesterday.
– We do not need any silly opinions. All statements of sympathy are ok, but nothing else should be uttered, the message continues.
The message also says that the mayor candidate Jan Vapaavuori will comment on the matter if necessary.
Jokinen said to the Finnish News Agency STT that the underlying message was not over knowledge of foolish commenting on the incident or other any other special reason, but to keep the candidates on the campaign message.
