Christian Democrats want smaller daycare groups
When Göran Hägglund of the Christan Democrats entered the stage at Almedalen Sunday night, the intense politician's week on the picturesque island of Gotland kicked off.
Hägglund, who heads one of the four parties in the government coalition, opened with a proposal to lower the number of children in preschool classes.
"We need to get money to decrease the children's groups. It is a problem, especially for the youngest children," he said.
The Christian Democrats want to raise the ceiling of the preschool fee for parents earning a combined gross monthly salary of more than SEK 45,000.
Each day, the politicians' week focuses on a different party. After the Christian Democrats yesterday, on Monday it is time for the Sweden Democrats, who will try to draw more women voters by raising the issue of the right to full-time work.
