In Sweden, there has been a massive political crisis due to disagreements in the government regarding the reception of refugees. It is reported by Politico.
The party of Social Democrats proposes to limit migration flows to Sweden and establish quotas for refugees, which the Greens are against. Representatives of this party threatened to leave the coalition government if the discussion of the new law takes place without their participation.
вЂњIt is very clear to us that it is impossible for parties in the government to make different decisions; we have a common responsibility, вЂќ said Annika Hirvonen Falk, spokeswoman for the Green Party.
The withdrawal of the Greens from the coalition will not necessarily lead to early elections, however, such a development of events threatens the stability of the political system and can lead to unrest in the country, which already suffered from the coronavirus pandemic, the newspaper notes.
In addition, SwedenвЂ™s refusal of liberal refugee policies could upset the balance in Europe and shift it toward the anti-immigrant sentiment.
It was previously reported that the Swedish economy has benefited unexpectedly from quarantine and most other restrictive measures associated with the spread of coronavirus. So, over the past three months, the Swedish krona to the euro has grown from 11.2 kroons per euro in mid-March to 10.4 kroons in early July.
