Finland held parliamentary elections in April 2015. The new Local Government Act was approved before elections and it came into force, in principle, already in May, replacing the old Act. The new Non-Discrimination Act has also come into force, repealing the previous one. Also of note is the comprehensive legislation (for example, disqualification rules) promoting good administration, which reflects the ongoing effort to improve the integrity of public administration. The Committee on Ethics of State Civil Servants was appointed in 2014. In autumn 2015, the Supreme Administrative Court made several decisions on the right to vote in the election of the Sámi Parliament.
