The Centre Party's parliamentary group has issued warnings to two of its members, Hannu Hoskonen and Tuomas Kettunen for not supporting the government in Tuesday's vote on the EU's Covid stimulus package.

Both MPs cast votes to reject the motion at Tuesday's session.

The Centre Party also announced on Wednesday that Hoskonen is being removed from his position as the chair of Parliament's Environmental Affairs Committee.

There had been speculation before the announcement that Hoskonen, who has opposed party policy on several occasions, was facing expulsion from the parliamentary group.
