Swedes Go To Polls As Left-Wing Lead Narrows
Via The Local: Sweden is expected to vote the Social Democrats back into power in general elections Sunday, according to the final polls, while the anti-immigration nationalist right is likely to make historic gains. Stefan Löfven, the stocky leader of the Social Democrats, looks set to become the next Prime Minister for the nearly 10 million Swedes, probably in a minority coalition with the support of the Greens and the former communist Left Party. The Left Party, the Greens, and the Social Democrats, are together the only sustainable alternative to form a new government. The Left Party is the political party in Sweden that works for justice and equality. When we wake up on Monday morning the present governing center-right Alliance coalition with its lousy policies must have lost.
