Center Reversal on Tsunami No Confidence Vote

Published fredag 9 december 2005 kl 12.14
Center Party leader Maud Olofsson announces her party's reversal on the vote of confidence

Controversy continues following last week’s official report sharply criticizing the Swedish government for its late response to the Asian tsunami disaster, which took the lives of more than 500 Swedes.

Less than a day after Sweden’s opposition political parties agreed to delay bringing a vote of no confidence against the government, the Center Party reversed position, calling for a vote against Foreign Minister Laila Freivalds.

As the Center is the smallest member of the 4 party opposition alliance, it lacks the votes in parliament to force a no-confidence  in the near future is unlikely, but the disagreement has raised doubts about the alliance’s ability to govern together should it win next year’s elections.
