Lost its place as leading party?[edit]

The article says:

When this did not work any longer in the early 90's, the party was blamed for irresponsibility and between 1991-1994 lost its place as leading party of Sweden.

But Elections_in_Sweden states that the party had 37.6% of the votes in 1991 voted Social Democrats, whereas the second party, the Moderate Party, had only 21.9%. What is meant by 'lost its place as leading party'? I replaced leading by governing. If this is incorrect, please explain what is. Gerrit CUTEDH 11:17, 13 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Good point. In 1991, four right/center parties formed a coalition government with a total of 46.6 % of votes, with Carl Bildt , from Moderaterna , as prime mininster. So the social democrats lost their place as governing party of Sweden. So you are correct in the change. --Fred-Chess 12:55, 13 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Name Grammar[edit]

Originally "Arbetarepartiet–Socialdemokraterna ('The Workers' Party – The Social Democrats')" was "Arbetarepartiet–Socialdemokraterna ('Workers' Party – Social Democrats')." I changed it so that the English translation is in the definite as well. I am not a Swedish native speaker, so I just want to make sure this is okay.

Coronavirus pandemic response[edit]

I think the HISTORY section should include a paragraph or three on Sweden's response to Covid-19 Andy42W (talk) 20:31, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

I disagree, it seems like WP:RECENT to me. Besides, the responsibility for Sweden's response to the current pandemic lies with the government, which comprise not only the Social Democrats but also the Green Party. Unless the pandemic e.g. leads to the party splitting up or something equally noteworthy I don't see how this is WP:DUE in this article. Sjö (talk) 04:28, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
