Opposition Ready to Postpone Nuclear Energy Phaseout

Opposition leaders Wetterstrand, Sahlin, Eriksson, Ohly

Sweden’s three left opposition parties have announced a change of their policy concerning nuclear energy. In a joint statement published by daily Dagens Nyheter the opposition leaders said that they are abandoning the demand for a speedy phaseout of the country’s nuclear power plants.

Instead, they are now proposing a general review of energy policy after each legislative period. The long-range target remains terminating the use of atomic power in favor of renewable energy sources. The policy change is mainly attributed to a compromise by the green Environment Party who gave up their previous strictly anti-nuclear position. In their jointly written communiqué the party leaders criticized the government’s recent refusal to further discuss a non-partisan energy policy agreement with the opposition. 

The statement was signed by Mona Sahlin for the Social Democrats, Maria Wetterstrand and Peter Eriksson for the Greens, and Lars Ohly for the Left Party.
