C leader’s government attack: Cheap copy of the Social Democrats

today at 08.41 Anna Sjögren

The Center Party’s new leader, Muharrem Demirok, launches a fierce attack on the government, which he believes is leading Sweden towards increased unemployment.

– We have a government that is trying to tame the Social Democrats. Or as my children would say: They are a Wish copy of the Social Democrats. You ordered something but got something completely different in the package that came home, he says in an interview with GP.

As an example, he mentions that the employer’s fee for young people is raised on 1 April and makes it SEK 3,000 more expensive to hire a young person. The tightened rules around labor immigration will also hit many entrepreneurs hard, he says.
