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 the 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.

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.
