A coalition government comprising the Social Democratic Party (SAP) and the Green Party has taken office following the election in September 2014. This red-green centre-left coalition, which replaces the four-party centre-right Alliance for Sweden government, has a smaller parliamentary minority owing to a rise in the number of seats gained by the far-right Sweden Democrats (SD).

The SD obstructed the government's 2015 budget in a parliamentary vote in early December 2014, leading to its effective collapse. But the SAP-led coalition later struck a deal with the Alliance bloc, which undercut the balance of power held by SD. The so-called "December Agreement"-which secures opposition support for government budgets from 2016-will remain in place until 2022, and should be conducive to political stability and government effectiveness over the forecast period.

Internationally, Sweden will remain officially neutral, but will co-operate more closely with NATO members and increase defence spending over the forecast period to bolster its military capability.
