Social Democratic Congress

“New Self-Confidence” - Sahlin

Mona Sahlin

The Social Democrats, Sweden’s biggest opposition party, ended their party congress in Älvsjö, south of Stockholm, Sunday afternoon. In her final speech party leader Mona Sahlin said the congress had given her and the whole party new self-confidence to re-claim governmental power after the next general elections in September 2010.

The gathering was mostly dominated by harmony – with delegates adopting the vast majority of proposals Sahlin and the party’s board had made. The Social Democrats vowed to keep three of the four tax cut steps as implemented by the current center-right government and to allow privately-run health care companies to take out profits if they ensure accurate maintenance of their facilities.

For the first time ever, the heads of the other opposition parties (Left Party, Green Party) were welcomed to the Social Democratic congress to symbolize the willingness to form a coalition government in the next legislative term.
