How the Swedish Social Democrats Strategically placed it self to win the next election
Tuesday, 01 May 2012
very good leader in an organisation that is sinking can be tied to luck
even if the leader being selected could be determined to be a good
technocrat. Such an example was seen with the Social Democrat party in
Sweden where the change of leadership has totally changed the fortunes
of the party for the better. But it was not so before.
No party has risen so sharply in the polls as the Social Democrats have made in recent months.
“The fact that
a single party has shifted ten, twelve percentage points in either
direction has not been seen before,” says Henrik Oscarsson, Professor
of Political Science at Gothenburg University, to radio Sweden that
today presents a weighted average of the five major polls.
On January this
year the Social Democrats was placed at 25.3 percent. Today, the party
stands at 35.6 percent. When Stefan Löfven took over from Håkan Juholt
as party leader, the curve turned upward.
Figures for the
Left Party and Green Party has certainly fallen slightly, but if there
were an election today the Red-Green coalition parties would get more
than half of the votes.
Moderate is 30.1 percent is showing a drop of 3.4 percentage points compared with April last year.
So, as much as
the change of leadership of the party led to its changed fortunes, luck
could also have played a role because when the first change took place,
from Mona Sahlin to Håkan Juholt the party went down. Now the party
looks at winning the next election.
