Sweden's center-left government has announced a deal with the mainstream opposition in order to avoid holding a snap election. The agreement sidelines the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats, who helped vote down the government's budget earlier this month. The party had been demanding a reversal in Sweden's liberal immigration laws in return for its support.
Argon Brevent reports. “On the surface, the purpose of this deal was to establish stability in Sweden, which is facing its most severe political crisis in sixty years. But the subplot was to neuter the anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats, the third biggest party which provides a voice to those opposed to the nation's generous open-door policy. Some political commentators believe the new deal will intensify the debate over immigration, rather than suppress it. Sweden anticipates that next year, it will grant asylum to more than 100,000 refugees from Syria and Iraq.”
