In Sweden, the unity of the blockgränsen in defence policy had an intrinsic value. But now run the risk of a försvarsberedning for the first time to crack. The preparation will lay the groundwork for the parliamentary defense bill passed by the years 2020-2025, by which the report must be finished on may 14.

" The economic piece is incredibly central. There is no agreement on the economy – then falls the rest, " says Daniel Bäckström, a Swedish mep member of the committee.

We have developed a proposal according to the mission we have been given, according to our directive from the government. I am very surprised that it does not get the go-ahead from the government, "said Mikael Oscarsson, the christian democrat member, who warns:
" It's a very unclear position, in the worst case, the preparation of the crack. But there is, as I understand it, a clear majority in the parliament with the Christian democrats, the Centre party, the Liberals, Moderates, and where even SD is on about the same line.
also in the preparation. The bourgeois speculate that the ruling party, the social democrats may be forced to write a dissenting opinion in the report. The conservatives defence policy spokesperson Beatrice Ask says:
– It would be very strange if the social democrats, set himself at the side of the Försvarsberedningens conclusions. Research assessment is that the defense budget must be strengthened in the next few years. Is not done, it drops the ability.
