A new red-green coalition government comprising the Social Democratic Party (SAP) and the Green Party has taken office following the election in September 2014. This two-party 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 Left Party was not invited to join the coalition, but the new government will continue to rely upon its support in parliament, particularly when the coalition tries to get the 2015 budget passed in December.

Economic policy under the SAP-Green government will prioritise employ-ment, education and welfare, while eschewing tax cuts and privatisation. Fiscal responsibility will be central to policy proposals, with all increases in public spending being fully financed by tax rises. The presence of the Green Party in government will also mean a greater focus on environmental policy.
