More Funds to Save Jobs in Sweden

With only one year to go before parliamentary elections here, the Swedish center-right coalition government is getting ready to present additional funding to off set rising unemployment.

Visiting a police station in a Stockholm suburb, party leaders from the conservative Moderates, the Liberals, the Center Party and the Christian Democrats said they are keeping their election campaign promise made three years ago to beef up Sweden's police force to 20,000 to cover the entire nation.

Meanwhile, some local government leaders have blasted the government's earlier pledge to provide them with more funds next year to save jobs - insisting this is only a drop in the bucket and will only save some jobs in the school system and health care for one year only instead of creating new jobs.

Unemployment and the economic recession are already dominating the informal election campaigning here.
