Ulf Kristersson: ”Sverige kommer gå med i Nato – det är jag helt övertygad om”
Sverige kommer öppna dörren för ett Natomedlemskap efter ett maktskifte i höst, och en Nato-option ska uttalas av en ny M-ledd regering. Det beskedet ger Ulf Kristersson i Expressens partiledarintervju. – Ingen kan säga att S i evig framtid har vetorätt över detta, säger han. Moderaterna...
Sweden will open the door to NATO membership after a change of power in the autumn, and a NATO option will be issued by a new M-led government. This message is given by Ulf Kristersson in Expressen's party leader interview.
"No one can say that S will have a veto over this forever," he says.
The Conservatives are also preparing a series of reforms to allow decisions to be made on new nuclear reactors.
"The unique thing now is that we can have a government base and a government that is unequivocal on the issue," he says.
At the same time, Ulf Kristersson does not want to answer which parties will sit in his government, and does not rule out a moderate one-party government after the election.
Three weeks old news but still seems especially relevant in the current circumstances.
Sweden has a proportional electoral system, in which his right-wing coalition sits at about 48% (vs 49%, Left-wing, 3% Others) support according to the latest polling (which occurred in early Feb - it is probable that the Russian invasion may have swayed public opinion).
The election will be held in September, as the coalition stands one seat away from the majority and executive power (174/175, out of 349 total seats).
