The Sweden Democrats have agreed with the government on about two-thirds of the parliamentary votes during the first year with the Tidö government. This is shown by data on the votes analyzed by DN with the help of the company Datastory .
Linda Lindberg, Sweden Democrats' group leader, is not surprised by this figure, as being in opposition allows them to utilize all available tools in parliament. They continue to pursue the parts of their policy not covered by the Tidö agreement, as they do not have full influence in the government.
Despite being an opposition party, Linda Lindberg sees Sweden Democrats as collaborative. They have reached agreements with the government on significant policy areas such as migration and crime, and they also have a budget collaboration.
Negotiations are ongoing for an update of the Tidö agreement, and any changes will be decided after the autumn budget submission on September 20. This may lead to increased unity within the right-wing coalition.
As Sweden Democrats transitions into a more responsible role, they face the challenge of attracting voters while being involved in decision-making. Linda Lindberg acknowledges that some frustration exists among voters regarding the pace of problem-solving, but she believes their supporters understand that politics takes time.
