Failed attempt to register a Finnish Nazi party in Finland
Wednesday, 25 May 2011
The success of the Truefinns party in Finland has made some people think that Finland is now a racist state and as a result more extreme far right groups are emerging. The latest to arrive is the attempt to register a Nazi party in Finland. 

According to latest reports on political movements in Finland, the Finnish National Socialist Workers’ Party, otherwise known as Finland’s Nazi party, has failed to complete the registration process for associations. Finland’s National Board of Patents and Registration (PRH) stopped the application process after asking for revisions and additional information.


The PRH set a May 16 deadline for the party to make the changes required. Among other things, the party was asked to clarify was their ideological purpose. The PRH asked for the party to provide greater precision in its rules, and to clarify what exactly national socialism means, according to regional newspaper Savon Sanomat.

The PRH has not made a decision on whether or not the party can register as an association, as the deadline lapsed. The party can not apply to the Interior Ministry to join the register of the official political parties unless it successfully becomes an association. The party can submit another application.
