The Green Party’s message: We are leaving the government

Released on Wednesday Magdalena Andersson (S) emerged as Sweden’s new prime minister. But earlier in the morning, the Center Party stated and Annie Lööf that it will not support the government budget.

The announcement meant that the budget alternative presented by the Moderates, Sweden Democrats and Christian Democrats would probably go through. Something that made the Green Party consider leaving the government, which News24 previously reported on.

M, KD and SD’s budget is voted through

Shortly after 4 pm on Wednesday, it became clear that the opposition parties’ budgets had been voted through, which means, among other things, that the government’s family week will not be introduced, nor will new funds for extra services and introductory jobs, and building subsidies and energy efficiencies will be abolished.

The changes also mean that the appropriation for the purchase of forest for two billion kronor, then for large areas near mountains close to the mountains, will not be lost, which is a major reason for the Green Party’s proposal.

– They get to make their decisions. We will see how long they need to think, said Magdalena Andersson and claimed that she is willing to rule on the right-wing budget as well.

The Green Party leaves the government

During the press conference after the budget vote, the Green Party announced that they are now leaving the government, saying that politics for them is not just a game, but something that shapes society and the future.

– We are both surprising and outraged by the Center Party’s actions, the mouthpiece begins Per Bolund.

– We have one according to the party behind us that we can not sit in government that implements policy SD negotiated. We must look our voters in the eye and feel pride, says the mouthpiece Märta Stenevi.

Time and time again, they reinforce their message that they do not want to sit in a government when a budget in which SD has influence is voted on. Stenevi believes, among other things, that the Sweden Democrats “make a difference between people and people” and “slaughter climate work”.

Spokesmen are asked what the newly elected Prime Minister says about the decision.

– We have announced Magdalena Andersson and she understands our position, says Per Bolund.

At 5.30 pm, Magdalena Andersson will hold a press conference.
