Reinfeldt Understands Public Anger

Published måndag 22 februari 2010 kl 13.55
Fredrik Reinfeldt met the public in Borås on Monday

Sweden's prime minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, whose support amongst the public has fallen according to the latest opinion polls, moved on Monday to address the breakdown in the communal public transport system caused by the severe Winter snow.

Reinfeldt said that he was "unhappy" with the way the rail and road system had failed to cope with the snow and ice and understood the public's "irritation."

The government is to launch an investigation into what lessons can be learned to improve matters in the future.

Meanwhile a survey by pollsters Sifo showed that the prime minister's healthy lead over Social Democrat opposition leader Mona Sahlin had narrowed from 40 percent to 30 percent.

Sifo said the fall can be attributed to the recent scandal involving the prime minister's party, the conservative Moderates, which saw several members resign over allegations of vote rigging.
