Swedish Social Democrats would love to cooperate with the People’s party and Centre party


Saturday, 20 August 2011
The Swedish Social Democrats party is open for future government cooperation with the People’s (Liberal) Party and Centre Party. These parties are currently in the governement with the Moderate party of Prime minister Fredrik Reinfeldt.
If the Social Democrats get to governement in the future therefore, one could see them ditching their former partners the Greens and the left party. Could this be an improved strategy to get to power by all means?

“That we and the Conservatives would get together in a government is incredible, but the Centre Party or the People’s (Liberal) party are where I see that there are opportunities for cooperation,” said Social Democrat party secretary Carin J�mtin to the Swedish tabloid newspaper Expressen.

Otherwise, the Social Democrats, according J�mtin, is willing to cooperate with all parties except the far right party, Sweden Democrats.

Green Party is also open for co-operation with the conservatives or (bourgeois) government in three areas of infrastructure, housing and education / schools, writes the Green party’s spokesman Asa Romson and Gustav Fridolin in a debate article published in the Swedish daily, Dagens Nyheter.

"The Green Party will never be a fifth Alliance Party," explain the spokes persons. "But a constructive opposition is always ready to seek broad agreements where possible and necessary."

At this moment the way the Swedish political blocs stake out are as follows
The government is made up of 4 political parties known as the alliance bloc. They are the Conservative Moderates, the Centre party, The Christian Democrats and the People’s party or the liberal party.
The opposition, on the flip side, is made up of the Social Democrats, the Green party and the Left party. They form what is know that the Red-Green Coalition.

Then there is the Swedish Democrat party, the radical racist Nazi – linked party which no other party wants to collaborate with. It is the most isolated party in the parliament.
