Opposition regroups, promises rough ride for new government

4:16 min

The opposition parties on Friday promised a rough ride in the months ahead for the newly minted Social Democrat and Green government.

With the Centre and Liberal parties sharing the platform that the Social Democrat Stefan Löfven was elected on, the opposition Christian Democrats, the Moderates and Sweden Democrats were united in expressing their disappointment over Sweden's new government.

But the Sweden Democrats' hope that they could together form a joint bloc was rejected by Christian Democrat leader Ebba Busch Thor on Friday.
