Stefan Löfven, leader of Sweden's Social Democrats is worried about the Norwegian election results
Tuesday, 10 September 2013
Sweden's Social Democratic party leader, Stefan Löfven (pictured below)
says he is disappointed by the Norwegian election results
"It is worrying. The Norwegian people have chosen and with all due
respect, to it, it is still worrying that such a right wing populist
party may come in a Norwegian government," says Stefan Löfven to radio
Swedish premier Fredrik Reinfeldt has also commented on the Norwegian election results.
"I've called Erna Solberg and complimented the Hoyres fantastic
'success. It pleases me especially because Erna and I worked together
for many years we learned from each other renewal of our
respective parties," said Fredrik Reinfeldt in a written message to the
Swedish news agency, TT, late last night.
Stefan Löfvén does not think that the Labour Party election results
will affect how the Social Democrats in the Swedish elections reflect
"There again what we can conclude is that you do not really want to
have a new policy in Norway without new politicians. Conservatives have
not wanted to refer too much to the rightwing policy in Sweden in terms
of how it has gone with private schools and so on. I feel safe in the
development, for our part," says Stefan Löfven.
The Norwegian election result last night was historic for the country
in several ways. The Right-wing populist Progress Party will likely be
in government, though Norway's second female prime minister would have
been a great celebration to a country that has seem more women hitting
the corporate boardroom than neighbouring counters of Sweden and
Denmark. But the fears now is how the government will look like?
