The government changes plan to ignore parliament on emergency moves

The government changes plan to ignore parliament on emergency moves
After heavy criticism, the government has backed down on plans to give itself the power to take emergency measures without first winning the approval of parliament.

The idea was to enable the government to take swift action in order to combat the spread of the corona virus, but after heavy criticism from both ends of the political spectrum - the opposition Moderate Party and the Left Party, the proposal has been changed to allow parliament the right to examine and amend any emergency measures.

The proposal, which will cover a three-month period, would grant the government the power to limit gatherings, close supermarkets, nightclubs, gyms, cafes and sporting arenas.

It would also make possible the limiting of access to buses, trains, flights and harbours
The Minister for Health and Social Affairs, Lena Hallengren, has had the responsibility of drawing up the proposal.

She stressed the need for the bill to become law as soon as possible.

The proposal will go to all agencies involved, and they will have a 24-period to respond with opinions and possible changes.

Lena Hallengren wants parliament to process the bill next so that it will become the law of the land ‪on the 10th of this month‬.
 
The government seeks extra emergency powers

The government has put forward a proposal to give it the power to take emergency measures to combat the corona virus outbreak without seeking parliament’s approval.

The government is moving to demand new powers to act in an emergency without first having to seek a majority in parliament.

A draft proposal is being written for a new law that will enable the government to take quick action in order to combat the spread of the corona virus.

Ulf Kristersson, leader of the opposition Moderate Party, has criticised the proposal, saying that it completely ignores the role of parliament as the representative of the people.

Jonas Sjöstedt, leader of the Left Party, says that he is sceptical to the idea of such a transferal of power from parliament to the government.

The proposal, which will cover a three-month period, would grant the government the power to limit gatherings, close supermarkets, nightclubs, gyms, cafes and sporting arenas.

It would also make possible the limiting of access to buses, trains, flights and harbours.

The proposal is currently being shown to and discussed with all the parliamentary parties, and until agreement is reached the government has no official comment to make.
