Introducing the Healthcare Party

Published måndag 5 december 2005 kl 13.04

There’s a new political party on the block ... again.

The latest ”special interest” party with its eye on Parliament is the Healthcare Party.

Foundations were laid out in Uppsala on Saturday. The group now has an interim board and its party policy became clearer. Kenneth Backgård, the chairman of this temporary board described the newcomer as not aligning itself with any of the established parliamentary parties. Its platform, as well as concentrating on improving health care, includes reducing the tax burden and running railways and roads under public ownership.

Backgård sees the doors to parliament opening. In the last county council elections, healthcare parties picked up

130 000 votes. That means they need to double their votes to get the 4% necessary to get into parliament.
