I know who I am voting for, and it’s not the jackass who applauded and laughed while a leftist novelist trashed America.
Laura Huhtasaari named Finns Party presidential candidate
Evolution denialist Huhtasaari has been touted as the “embodiment of the Finns Party” by Chairman Jussi Halla-aho.
The Finns Party council chose Member of Parliament Laura Huhtasaari as the party’s presidential candidate.
Huhtasaari was the only person to seek the candidacy. The decision to nominate Huhtasaari was unanimous.
Huhtasaari was named the party’s Vice Chairman in the Finns Party convention this June, beating establishment favourite Defence Minister Jussi Niinistö.
Party chairman Jussi Halla-aho has backed Huhtasaari’s candidacy, and said she is the embodiment of the Finns Party.
Huhtasaari is a vocal Eurosceptic, and has said the effects of immigration to Finland should be “positive or neutral”.
She is against gender neutral marriage, obligatory Swedish teaching, and gay adoption rights. Huhtasaari does not believe in evolution.
The first round of the presidential elections will be held in January.
Huhtasaari is up against sitting President Sauli Niinistö, Centre Party MP and former Prime Minister Matti Vanhanen, the Green League’s Pekka Haavisto, SDP’s Tuula Haatainen, Left Alliance MEP Merja Kyllönen, Swedish People’s Party MEP Nils Torvalds, and Paavo Väyrynen as a candidate of his Citizen’s Party.
