“Stefan Löfven goes down in history as one of our most skilled prime ministers. The many trials he has led our country through are each defining for a leader.”

So writes Joakim Spångberg, a political expert at the Ministry of Social Affairs, in a Twitter post that has been “liked” by various S-tops such as Annika Strandhäll.

A number of posts with similar meanings are spread on social media.

“About Tage Erlander, it is often said that he never let power rise to his head. This also applies to Stefan Löfven. Stefan has during all these years remained a down-to-earth, genuine and a completely honest person. Chopped in one piece”, writes Minister of Justice Morgan Johansson on Facebook about his colleague.

But the internal tributes to the resigning S-leader are criticized from elsewhere.

SD leader Jimmie Åkesson comments on the resignation message from Löfven as follows:

“Stefan Löfven's reign is a dark episode in Sweden's contemporary history. Serious crime, mass immigration, parallel societies, grant dependency, energy crisis and much much more. It will take a long time to heal the deep wounds that the government's many total failures have torn up. our society. “

Åkesson emphasizes, however, that Stefan Löfven's announced resignation unfortunately does not make” any major difference for Sweden, at least not in the short term “.

” Politicians who worked hard and wanted well “
The Moderates' party leader Ulf Kristersson, for his part, thanks Löfven for” these common years in Swedish politics “.

” I have never doubted his good intentions and his willingness to do what is good for Sweden “, Kristersson writes in a statement, according to Aftonbladet.

KD leader Ebba Busch writes on Twitter that” politicians like Löfven who worked hard and wanted well deserve a big thank you “. The wording arouses strong criticism from other users.
