Moderate Party Benefits from Crisis

The conservative Moderate Party is up in the polls - largely due to their handling of the economic crisis. The financial crisis benefits the party that has the heavy weight positions in the government, says analyst Ulf Bjereld. The moderates are the largest party in Sweden’s ruling centre-right coalition and the latest opinion polls show them now on 31.1%, a twelve-year high.

This comes as the Moderate party’s Anders Borg, Sweden’s finance minister, goes on the attack against the employers’ association Svensk Näringsliv. In an interview on Saturday with swedish radio news he calls the association a ’special interest group for the super rich’ and dismisses their calls for yet more labour market deregulation.

The head of Svensk Näringlsiv, Signhild Arnegård Hansen, has responded by calling the minister’s remarks an exercise in populism.
