Finnish Parliament member to address BYU student April 7

For more than 20 years he has been active in various roles from Turku city council to a distinguished member of the Conservative Party.

Itala has been chairperson of Finland's parliamentary Super Committee since 2003. In July, he will step down to run for election to the European Union Parliament.

Prior to his current position, he was deputy prime minister (2001-03) and minister of the interior (2000-03) while also chair (2002-present) and vice chair (1999-2002) of the Conservative Party.
