Kristersson will present his demands at a meeting with the other party leaders in Sweden on Wednesday, he writes in a post in Dagens Nyheter.
The leader of the Moderates is saying a final goodbye to the infection control strategy that has separated Sweden from the outside world, and which has been followed by the government of the Social Democrat Stefan Löfven.
In the Swedish management model, bureaucrats in independent directorates have had a great responsibility. This was the case when the Moderates themselves had government power during the swine flu.
At that time, Anders Tegnell was also a key player. But if the Moderates get their way now, he will have his wings cut.
The leader of the Swedish right-wing party writes this about how the uncertainty surrounding the corona pandemic should have been handled:
– When you have to steer in the fog, only the government can take responsibility. And the decisions should be based on a precautionary principle.
– The Swedish line in the fight against coronary heart disease, with relatively milder restrictions than in other countries, has been a paradox of paradoxes. It writes the commentator Göran Eriksson in Svenska Dagbladet.
He writes that Sweden has been hailed by those who are not usually the country’s friends, such as the right wing in the United States. At home in Sweden, it has been the other way around. There, the criticism of the corona infection first came from the far right and the Sweden Democrats.
Gradually, the criticism has increased in strength, also from the opposition party Kristdemokraterna. But it is only now that the largest opposition party on the bourgeois side is taking a major stand.
The moderates demand that the government take power from the experts and to a greater extent control the infection control itself.
Requirements for stricter infection control
The Moderates are now launching a number of demands on the government. One of them is that the country gets an overall political crisis management, as it is in Denmark, Norway and Finland.
The party will also have a statutory order to use bandages in public transport. Ski resorts and other sports facilities must be able to be closed down quickly if necessary. More of the infection control must be governed by rules, not recommendations. Sampling and detection of coronavirus must increase.
The moderates also demand greater involvement from the government in the vaccination and better support schemes for those affected by the corona pandemic.
The leaders of Sweden’s infection control have been both praised and sharply criticized. Some of them have received police protection after threats. State epidemiologist Anders Tegnell and Director General Johan Carlson of the Public Health Authority, have been at the center of the storm, writes the news agency TT.
The threats started coming as early as last spring, but they have increased recently. Prime Minister Stefan Löfven says that they fill him with anger:
– They have crossed a line when people who only do their job and their best to protect people’s lives during a pandemic, are exposed to this.
12,649 deaths of covid-19 have been registered in Sweden according to Worldometer’s statistics on Tuesday morning.
