The Social Democrats make a somewhat worse election than in 2018, but still stand firm and the Miiljöpartiet increases slightly. On the other hand, their partner parties, the Christian Democrats and the Center Party, strongly back down.
– We are making roughly the same election as last year and are still the largest party in Södertälje, says Boel Godner (S), current municipal councilor in Södertälje.
Could be a power shift
Both the Moderates and the Sweden Democrats increase by over one percentage point. Now the Moderates hope that the Christian Democrats will come back and govern together with them and the Liberals with the passive support of the Sweden Democrats and the Realist Party.
– We have received positive signals from the Christian Democrats when we talked to them, that they want to return to the bourgeoisie, says Alexander Rosenberg (M).
The Christian Democrats are open to negotiation
David Winerdal (KD) is at the Christian Democrats’ election vigil in Stockholm when SVT gets hold of him on the phone.
– The election results show that the voters did not like this constellation that ruled together. First I have to go back to the party and talk to them, then we can negotiate, he says.
That the Christian Democrats in Södertälje are opening up to negotiate on governing together with the Moderates and Liberals with the passive support of the Sweden Democrats is news to Boel Godner (S) on election night.
– I thought that the Christian Democrats did not want to govern with the Sweden Democrats, nor with passive support. We’ll see in the next few days when negotiations are done, she says.
