  • The Economist Intelligence Unit

The four-party centre-right Alliance for Sweden returned to government in September 2010, but fell short of a majority. Given the large lead of the Social Democratic Party (SAP)-led opposition, The Economist Intelligence Unit predicts a change of government after the election in September 2014. Polling trends this year suggest that the smaller government parties are likely to attain more than 4%, reducing the margin of the opposition victory.

Nevertheless, a recent surge in support for the Green Party has increased the likelihood that the centre-left opposition bloc will command a majority. The SAP leader, Stefan Lofven, is likely to succeed Fredrik Reinfeldt as prime minister, but the composition and parliamentary strength of a Lofven-led government are less certain.

The 2014 budget bill contained a variety of stimulus measures, including personal income tax cuts. Banking sector regulation will be tightened further in the coming years, with stricter capital and liquidity rules. New macro-prudential measures will address longer-term, structural risk from high household debt.
