The new right-wing government in Sweden has scrapped its so-called “foreign feminist policy.”

Led by Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson, the government made sweeping policy changes within its first 24 hours of assuming office. 

“Gender equality is a core value for Sweden and this government, but we will not conduct a feminist foreign policy,” said foreign minister Tobias Billström.

“Because labels on things have a tendency to cover up the content.”

Second, the Ministry of Environment has also been abolished and replaced with a Ministry of Energy and Business. 

“If we want to solve climate issues, it’s about transforming industry and the transport sector,” said the new minister, Ebba Busch. 

Busch added that environmental issues “had been given too much weight.” 

Opposition members issued a joint statement condemning the decision.

The government’s four-part plan consists of constructing new nuclear reactors to provide itself with energy security rather than relying on foreign countries.

Sweden also announced a change to refugee policy. It will reduce the number of refugees they receive annually to 900. Last year, 6,400 refugees resettled in Sweden.

Refugee intake has been a challenge for the country for years. In 2015, the then-left wing government asked the EU for relief over the number of refugees Sweden was receiving.  

Now, the right-wing coalition government will introduce incentives for current refugees living in Sweden to return to their home countries, and find ways to deport others based on “misconduct.” 

This historic win for the right-wing government comes amid a crime wave linked to immigration.
