A working committee consisting of the party secretaries of all parliamentary parties suggested in May 2017 that the 2019 Finnish parliamentary election, scheduled for April, should be organized simultaneously with the European Parliament election.[3] The suggestion was considered by the Minister of Justice Antti Häkkänen,[4] but did not have enough parliamentary support to pass. Ultimately, the Finnish parliamentary election took place on 14 April 2019.
