Every day, there are reports on this. At least one medical centre in Stockholm, which was sold for Skr700,000  and then resold for Skr20 million, "he said as he address the parliament on Wednesday in the leaders question.


Fredrik Reinfeldt replied that Juholt was just giving examples of what he had in his introduction mentioned.
"This is the high pitch, caricatures of society, which is not correct. We have been selling wine and spirits. Håkan Juholt Want to buy it back? "he asked.

According to Reinfeldt the government still runs a majority of health care, education and care in the municipalities around the country. “It's good, but it's also good with other alternatives,” he stressed.

"I have listened to the anger that exists around the country. The Conservatives are pushing to sell off schools, hospitals and health centres. You give away our common assets," he said.

But Reinfeldt attacked Juholt to face reality.
"See things reality as they look, it's much more interesting than the high tone from the opposition who have no policy of their own but is just in love with the high pitch, "said Reinfeldt.
