Now is the right time

to roll up our sleeves and get to work!

Yhdessä me pystymme siihen

Vastuullista ja ennakoitavaa politiikkaa

Petteri Orpo -
a responsible policymaker

You, a resident of southwestern Finland, deserve an experienced representative in Parliament. I am available for this task. On this website you can read about me and my work!

I am a 53-year-old resident of Turku. My family includes my wife Niina, two kids and two dogs. My wife and I are avid outdoorsmen and enjoy long treks on foot or skis. I became passionate about politics during my time at the University of Turku and I have been active in municipal and national decision making ever since. 

In the spring parliamentary elections, I am seeking a strong mandate for a fifth term. I want to take responsibility for my country and ensure that Finland is put on the right track. Now is the right time to get back to the basics of politics - growth for the economy, strength for security and hope for the future!

On free time

You can find me either on the ski tracks, fishing, hunting or in the kitchen at home. Cooking on weekends for the whole family is my way of relaxing.

Work experience

More than 25 years of experience in managing common affairs in Turku, Southwest Finland and at national level.

Minister of Agriculture and Forestry 2014-2015. Minister of the Interior 2015-2016. Minister of Finance 2016-2019.

About my vision

I believe in people, the market economy and technology. Change for the better does not come from the central government, but from passionate and active people bettering their lives and the lives of others.

Hello there!

If you think that massive government debt, more central government meddling and more hopelessness is not the right direction for Finland, vote for change.

Finland needs action to save the welfare state, not just fine words. We want to put Finland's economy in order, because a strong economy is a prerequisite for prosperity. Now is the time to roll up our sleeves and get to work. 

Join us and our work – the future of Finland is our common cause!
