The Perussuomlaiset (PS) party parliamentary group decided today that Helena Eronen, PS MP James Hirvisaari’s aide should be sacked immediately for writing about foreigners wearing armbands to help police differentiate the nationality of the person, according to YLE.
After the meeting, Hirvisaari told reporters that nothing had been decided about Eronen.
PS parliamentary leader Pirkko Ruohonen-Lerner, who stepped out of the meeting after Hirvisaari, gave a totally different version. She said that the majority of the PS MPs decided to recommend to Hirvisaari that he’d “immediately sack his aide [Eronen].”
Ruohonen-Lerner said that this type of writing by Hirvisaari’s aide hurts the party and the parliamentary group.
She said that the parliamentary group cannot give the boot to Eronen. That was Hirvisaari’s job.
