Alliance: "The right budget, but the wrong government"

The leaders of the four Alliance parties blames the current political situation on Stefan Löfven. "This is the way it goes if you are not prepared," said Anna Kinberg Batra, the Moderate Party's group leader in parliament.

At a press conference on Wednesday evening, Kinberg Batra, standing next to Annie Lööf, leader of the Centre Party, Jan Björklund, leader of the liberal party, and Göran Hägglund, leader of the Christian Democrats, said that "Sweden got the right budget, but the wrong government".

Annie Lööf said they are looking forward to meeting the voters in the next election, and Jan Björklund called it "a failure of the red-green government. "We welcome the possibility of giving Sweden back an Alliance government as soon as in March," he said.

The Christian Democrat leader Göran Hägglund said part of the problem was that the Social Democrats did not say what policies they would introduce or who they would govern with. But he added that there is a risk that a new election will not solve the problems we have seen today, and said the alliance would want to review the rules in parliament to make it easier for a minority government to actually govern.
