Come-back for Ruling Parties

The gap in public opinion between the ruling centre right alliance and the opposition Social Democrats is closing according to the latest Skop public opinion survey.

The opposition alongside their Left and Green allies are still in better favour with voters but one professor of political science told news agency TT that everything is pointing towards a come-back for the ruling parties. 

The centre-right alliance suffered a blow during the Ulrica Schenström scandal, when Sweden’s most important civil servant and Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt’s closest advisor was photographed by the paparazzi at a pub drinking with a TV-reporter.

At this stage, the party with the least public support is the Left Party.  As a whole, the opposition clocks in with 49.5 percent of voter support, with the ruling coalition at 44.5 percent.

The conservative Moderate Party is pleased with this latest public opinion poll, and Party Secretary Per Schlingmann says initiatives when it comes to the labour market and tax cuts have pushed the party forward.
