The Swedish Green Party has just formed a government with the Social Democrats blocking right-wing extremists from power. This will be their second time in government after having been elected in 2014. It will include 5 Green Ministers.
Isabella Lövin will be Minister for the Environment and Climate, as well as Deputy Prime Minister. Per Bolund stays at the Ministry of Finance and continues as Deputy Finance Minister. He will also take over the responsibility for housing issues. Peter Eriksson will act as Minister for Development Cooperation at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Åsa Lindhagen will be the Minister for Gender Equality at the Ministry of Labour and will also be responsible for the work against discrimination and segregation. Amanda Lind will become Minister of Culture and Democracy at the Ministry of Culture. She is also responsible for youth and sports issues.
The Swedish Greens say this will allow them build upon the foundations they laid in the last 4 years and "continue to take responsibility for the climate, gender equality and compassion." They have announced that priorties will include investing in high-speed-trains that connect to the rest of Europe and sweeping new reforms to make Sweden the first fossil free welfare country.
