New Poll Shakes Up Government Coalition
Yet another opinion poll ahead of September's general election puts the ruling centre-right coalition in the lead, but weak performances by two of the four government parties could mean that the red-green opposition take power.
According to the latest figures from pollsters SKOP, the centre-right would win 48.1% of the votes, with the red-greens getting 46.7%.
But both the Centre and Christian Democrat parties would fall below the 4% threshhold for being guaranteed places in the Swedish parliament, meaning only the conservative Moderates and Liberals would win any MPs, on their own they would not be large enough to form a government, according to news agency TT.
The general election is to be held on September 19th.
