DEBATE. It has been 80 days since the election and still has not Sweden a new government.

Left have all the time brought forward to the results of the election in which we are a part of the largest regeringsunderlaget, the red-green, should be respected. We want to have a government without bourgeois parties, led by Stefan Löfven , and an influence of the Left party.

I understand if many voters are disappointed in the spectacle of the government that we have seen unfolding during the autumn, and which now goes on in the new acts, when Annie Lööf and Jan Björklund enters into the scene with their kravlistor to Stefan Löfven.

Lower taxes for those who earn most. Increased rents. Reduced salaries.

It is christmas time soon and maybe Loof and Bjorklund inspired by Ebenezer Scrooge in Dickens christmas carol, or what is it otherwise, for the piece they are trying to play?

Hamlet? Macbeth? The Miser?

In the best case, their stance is a sign that the Centre party and the Liberals can now accept Stefan Löfven as prime minister, it is about time. It is also to recognize the election results. Then we can see their kravlistor to the Leaves as the start of a negotiation.

Then Annie Lööf and Jan Björklund realize that it is not possible to force Stefan Löfven to pursue a policy which is located to the right of the policies of Fredrik Reinfeldt took office as prime minister.

For surely it cannot be so bad that Annie Lööf, the seriousness of not to negotiate the requirements with Stefan Löfven, and only playing for to get an extra choice?

When can that choice be named after her, ”Annie-Loof-choice”.

the Left want to see an S-led government that pursues a policy of equality and we have all the time been open to discuss, to negotiate and help to resolve the situation, we can see that what is needed now is politics, not more gambling. There is a Swedish reality out there with people who need sensible political decision, which is waiting on a government that sees to it that we have a welfare that works.

Families with disabled children are waiting to LSS-question will have a worthy solution.

Workers on an ever more precarious labour market with a general fixed-term, planing and public tours are waiting for a policy that stands up for everyone's right to decent conditions and wages to live on.

Young people who can't move away from home waiting for the construction of the rental units that they can afford to stay in. We need a more humane refugee policy that does not split families. We need higher wages in female-dominated occupations in welfare and a policy that makes the Swedish countryside can be developed. We are facing a climate crisis that requires strong action to set if the whole of society.

the Left want to see an S-led government that pursues a policy of equality. The left has, for the past four years has been through over 80 reforms that would make it better for the common people and not the benefit of the already rich. We got through raised child support to single parents, CSN-loans for a driver's license, with free medicines for children, free visits to the health center for those over 85, bet on the women's shelters and the right of deduction for fackföreningsavgiften.

the Left doesn't do theatre, we are serious to pursue policies that are good for the common people. If a government is based on our mandate, so we expect political influence, but we are not to set ultimatums and threatening. We want this to succeed.

We are interested in a government that chockhöjer the rents so that the common people have to move from their homes or lowers the wages of ordinary workers.

What Sweden needs is a government that works for equality, because it builds better communities.

Communities that is good for everyone, not just the few.

Jonas Sjöstedt , the leader of the Left party
