Opposition alliance "taking a break"
The three opposition parties that united as the red-greens are going their separate ways and will be putting forward their own proposals on a range of issues.
Mona Sahlin says to news agency TT that the Greens, the Left party and her Social Democrats will keep meeting every week, but the level of cooperation that they had up to the election will be taking a break.
Peter Eriksson, one of the Green Party spokespeople, says to TT that the red-green opposition parties will be developing their own budget proposals and political motions on other issues. He also says that he thinks the Left Party wanted to continue with a closer form of cooperation than what the Green and Social Democrat parties wanted.
Swedes had a choice between two blocs and two possible prime ministers during the last election, and some feared that a two-party system was developing.
