Isabella Lövin: We're the only party that always prioritised the environment

7:51 min

In Radio Sweden's series of party leader interviews, the Green party co-spokesperson and deputy prime minister, Isabella Lövin, questioned the climate achievements of the centre-right Alliance when they were in office.

Earlier this week, the Alliance said that they produced strong results in cutting emissions in their eight years in office while the current red/green government is full of 'empty promises' and 'hot air' when it comes to curbing climate change.

Isabell Löven though said that the claims are misleading.

"Let's say they were very lucky because they were in government when the Co2 tax which was introduced in the 90s, came into effect. But actual policies, whatever they introduced was not the reason for cutting emissions. When we came into government there was no reforms or new proposals on how to reduce emissions," she said.

The Green party co-spokesperson also talked to Radio Sweden about migration and the possibility of working with the Centre party and Liberals after the election.
