Ulf Kristersson cabinet
right-wing minority government, with confidence and supply from Sweden Democrats
|Opposition party||Social Democrats|
|Opposition leader||Magdalena Andersson|
|Election(s)||2022 Swedish general election|
The Kristersson Cabinet (Swedish: Regeringen Kristersson) is the 57th
In the 2022 Swedish general election, the right-wing parliamentary faction consisting of the Sweden Democrats, Moderate Party, Christian Democrats, and Liberals won a slim majority of 176 out of 349 seats. Following a month of negotiations, the Tidö Agreement was signed between the parties. Along with a list of common reforms, the agreement stipulates the parties' intention to govern as a coalition, with the confidence and supply from the Sweden Democrats.
On 17 October 2022, Kristersson was elected Prime Minister of Sweden by the Riksdag following a 176–173 vote. It is the first time the Sweden Democrats exert direct government influence. Some European Union lawmakers criticised the centre-right and the Moderate Party in particular, as a member of the European People's Party, for allying with the far right, as did Swedish opposition leaders.
Below are the cabinet members listed.
The government is set to base their politics on the Tidö Agreement. A specific policy manifesto was presented when Kristersson held his declaration of government (regeringsförklaring) on 18 October 2022.
