Finland suggesting a provisions for withdrawal be added in the euro membership arrangement

Tuesday, 01 November 2011
The feelings about the Euro in Finland remain very weak and the government is seeking means to avoid embarrassment by coming up with ingenious suggestions. Such solution should not affect the euro members and should also not embarrass a government when its people rise up one day and ask that they withdraw from the single currency


As such the Finnish government says it is ready to ask if a clause can be added to the EU constitution to allow for countries to leave the euro. The move follows an initiative by the Netherlands on the issue.

Germany and the Netherlands have made several proposals for changes to the EU's basic treaty, and those will be explored at a summit scheduled for December.

The Cabinet Committee on EU Affairs memo states that ”Finland is ready to research possibilities to increase treaty provisions relating to resignations from the euro.”
