a completely different issue discussed and opinions differ. Last week gave the party the news that the KD open for calls and possibly also in negotiations with The sweden democrats in the riksdag.
Ebba Busch Thor put a large part of his inaugural speech in Örebro on Friday to defend the decision that deviates from the promises she and other partiföreträdare issued for the election. She said that the last eight years of attempts to isolate The sweden democrats, led to the isolation themselves.
