In parliamentary debates the speakers make reference to each other. By extracting and linking named entities from the speeches it is possible to construct reference networks and use them for analysing networks of politicians and parties and their debates. This paper presents how such a network can be constructed automatically, based on a speech corpus 2015–2022 of the Parliament of Finland, and be used as a basis for network analysis.
