The Constitutional Law Commission has completed its opinion on the government’s conversion law.

According to Yle, the report has a joint objection from the Left Alliance and the Greens, which proposes rejecting the bill.

Yle will telecast the group’s press conference live at 1 p.m.

The extradition law temporarily prevents applications for international protection at or near the Finnish border.

The purpose of the proposal is to prevent instrumental immigration, which refers to large-scale immigration to a border organized by another state. According to the border guard and other officials, a similar phenomenon has been happening on Finland’s eastern border since last fall. Because of this, Finland’s eastern border has been closed since the end of last year.

The task of the Constitutional Law Commission is to take a position on whether a similar temporary exception can be made to the Constitution.

So as a five-sixth majority is urgently required to approve the Ordinance, the law will be passed as an Ordinance which also requires the support of the opposition parties.

As far as the opposition parties are concerned, the central government has said that they are in principle in favor of the law. The Green Party and the Left Coalition have already been highly critical of the law in the past. The SDP is awaiting the position of the Constitutional Law Commission on the matter.
