Opposition aims to force reform of disabled support system

1:22 min

Parties of the right and the left have joined forces to demand that the central state takes over all responsibility for running assistance support services for disabled people - and they think they are likely to succeed because the government is so weak when it comes to numbers in parliament.

Christian Democrat leader Ebba Busch says it's been known for a long time that the split responsibility for assistance support between local municipalities and central government that exists today has caused major problems, and the promise by the government and its collaborators to look into the matter isn't enough.

Left party leader Jonas Sjöstedt says what's important is that personal assistance is reliable across Sweden, and there aren't different conditions for people depending on which municipality they live in.
