  • Some 40 members of the Liberal Party have signed a petition demanding the party leadership declares that it wants to be part of a centre-right government after the next election.
  • The Liberals got only 2.7 percent in a recent opinion poll, which has caused alarm in the party ranks, with members demanding action.
  • The party used to be part of the centre-right Alliance, that governed Sweden 2006-14, but since the last election lends its support in parliament to the Social Democrat-Green coalition government through the January Agreement.
