Löfven after the vote: “Shoulders the task with determination”

On Wednesday, it was clear, after a vote in the Riksdag, that Stefan Löfven (S) will once again become Sweden’s Prime Minister.

Stefan Löfven: “Shoulders the task with determination”

At a press conference after the vote, Löfven commented on the result and the fact that he is now returning to the post of Prime Minister.

– The Riksdag has given me confidence to continue to lead Sweden. It is a great confidence. I shoulder the task with determination and respect, said Löfven.

“Continued difficult situation”

At the same time, Löfven criticized the opposition, which he describes as a “really, really right-wing conservative bloc”, for overthrowing the previous government without having a working alternative.

– The Swedish people assume that we politicians take responsibility for solving the difficult political situation that the country has been in. The leader of the right-wing political opposition fell without having his own plan for how the country should be governed. After two days he threw in the towel, Löfven said and continued:

– It is still a difficult situation, it is extremely even in the Riksdag.

Addressed the government’s priority issues

During the press conference, Löfven also touched on the political issues that the future government intends to prioritize in the future: investments in welfare, the environment and security.

– We must be uncompromising towards organized crime. Sweden has more police officers than ever before. But much remains to be done. The tempo will be shifted up further, he said.
