Reinfeldt meets with Speaker of Parliament, Björn von Sydow on Tuesday

Reinfeldt ready to form government

Incoming Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt went through the first formal step on Tuesday in putting together a new centre-right government to rule Sweden.

The Moderate Party leader met with the Swedish Parliament’s Parliamentary Speaker, Björn von Sydow, on Monday morning and formally declared he was ready to form a center-right coalition government after beating the centre-left Social Democrats in Sunday’s elections.

The Alliance for Sweden Parties will form a coalition government backed by a parliamentary majority of 178 seats in the 349-member parliament, the Riksdag.

It will be Sweden’s first majority government since a center-right coalition that ruled 1979-1981.
