The conservative Moderate Party today announced its intention to present a counter-proposal to the caretaker government’s transitional budget for 2019, which is due to be presented next week.

The Moderate’s spokesperson on economic affairs, Elisabeth Svantesson said Sweden has major needs for reform and it is natural for the Moderates to present their own budget containing the policies the party campaigned on in the election.
