Greens “convinced” of success

Green Party spokeswoman Maria Wetterstrand told Stockholm crowds that she was "absolutely convinced" there would be a red-green majority after Sweden's election on Sunday.

“There are no policies on the right to face the big challenges the world faces,” she said.

Her fellow spokesman Peter Eriksson insisted that his party and its allies “have policies that bring jobs.”

“Unemployment is falling every day.”

Eriksson declared that he was “scared by the leadership of the Alliance,” saying that their aims to reverse some of the Greens’ increases in energy tax would harm the environment.
