A native of Stockholm County, Reinfeldt joined the Moderate Youth League in 1983, and by 1992 had risen to the rank of chairman, a position he held until 1995. He has been a Member of Parliament since 1991, representing his home constituency. Following the 1994 defeat of the Moderate-led coalition government, Reinfeldt adopted a critical stance against the party leadership under Carl Bildt, which resulted in isolation within the party.

Personal life

Early life

Reinfeldt was born at Allmänna BB hospital in Stockholm as the oldest of three brothers to his parents Bruno and Birgitta Reinfeldt. At the time of his birth his parents lived in an apartment in Österhaninge in the south of Stockholm County, but a short time afterwards the family moved to London, England where his father worked as a consultant for Shell. Upon returning to Sweden, the family first lived in an apartment in Handen before moving to a terraced house in Bromsten in northwestern Stockholm. The Reinfeldt family was living in Bromsten when Fredrik's younger brothers, Magnus and Henrik, were born in 1969 and 1973. In 1976, the family moved into a single-family home in Täby in northeastern Stockholm County. His mother Birgitta was a leadership and management consultant, and some of her professional skills might have inspired and impressed the young Fredrik.[2][3] Allmänna BB (Allmänna barnbördshuset) was a childbirth hospital in Stockholm, Sweden. ...

Genealogy

During the last election, a story arose that Reinfeldt's paternal great-grandfather, John Reinfeldt, was the illegitimate son of Emma Dorotea Reinfeld, a maid from Eckau in present-day Latvia, and John Hood, a black circus director from New York.[8] Emma Dorotea Reinfeld later married the Swede Anders Karlsson, but her son John kept his mother's surname.

Reinfeldt joined the Moderate Youth League in 1983 at the age of 18. As a member of the Moderate Youth League in Täby, he challenged the leaders of the local youth league, who preferred to use the premises as a place to drink beer and wine rather than engage in politicking.[2] Reinfeldt, who is said to dislike hard liquor and to consume wine and beer in moderate amounts,[2] started "Conservative Youth" (Swedish: Konservativ ungdom) and formed a bond with the mother party, eventually taking over the youth league in 1987.

He was active in student politics while studying at Stockholm University, eventually becoming chairman for the student party "Borgerliga Studenter – Opposition '68" between 1988 and 1989.[4] In 1990, he became chairman of the Moderate Youth League in Stockholm, and in 1991 Reinfeldt was elected a member of the Riksdag (Swedish: riksdagsledamot).[4] In the Swedish general election of 1991, the Moderate Party and its allies had considerable success, leading to the formation of a centre-right coalition government under Moderate Party leader and Prime Minister Carl Bildt.

Leader of the Moderate Youth League

From 1992 to 1995, Reinfeldt was the chairman of the Moderate Youth League. He ousted the former chairman, Ulf Kristersson at the controversial congress known as The Battle of Lycksele, gathering 58 of the delegates votes with Kristersson gathering 55 votes.[11] The 1992 congress was also the culmination of a long ideological battle within the Moderate Youth League.[3] Reinfeldt later stated that although the effects of that deep ideological division and battle in the party lingered on within the Moderate Youth League, he also felt that it was a defining moment in his life. Had he lost the battle he would most likely not be in politics today.[2][11] During the period 1995 to 1997, Reinfeldt was chairman of the Democrat Youth Community of Europe.[12] This article is being considered for deletion in accordance with Wikipedias deletion policy. ...

At the beginning of his term as leader of the Moderate Youth League, Reinfeldt supported the government of Prime Minister Bildt, but Reinfeldt gradually changed his views and became more critical of the party leadership. In 1993, he wrote the book "Det sovande folket" (The Sleeping Nation), in which he criticized the Swedish welfare state and argued for the introduction of a neoliberalist society. Following the defeat of the Bildt government in the Swedish general election of 1994, Reinfeldt publicly criticized the Moderate Party leader, whom Reinfeldt believed had gotten too much dominance in the party.[3] There are three main interpretations of the idea of a welfare state: the provision of welfare services by the state. ...

In 1995, Reinfeldt co-authored the book "Nostalgitrippen" (The Nostalgic Trip), which described several persons in the Moderate Party leadership, including Gunnar Hökmark and Bo Lundgren, as "Carl Bildt-lookalikes". Bildt was described as being the perfect leader for the opposition to satirize; a nobleman living in the affluent Östermalm with a boyish expression and a better-than-you attitude.[2] As for the other high party officials, the book stated that: "If everyone appears similar to Carl it confirms peoples misconceptions about the Moderate Party. It becomes a party for Carl Bildt-copies."[11] Gunnar Hökmark Gunnar Hökmark (born September 19, 1952) is a Swedish politician and Member of the European Parliament for the Moderate Coalition Party; part of the European Peoples Party. ...

This provoked swift reaction from the Moderate Party leadership, who believed that Reinfeldt's criticisms had gone too far. On February 14, 1995, Reinfeldt was called to a meeting of the Moderate Party's Riksdag group, which took place in the former second chamber (Swedish: andrakammarsalen) of the Swedish parliament building, a meeting where Bildt apparently scolded him for hours.[3] After this, Reinfeldt toned down his criticism, but was ostracized within the Moderate Party and not given any important posts until after the change of leadership when Lundgren succeeded Bildt in 1999. At that time, he was elected into a high party group, the förtroenderåd.[2] From 2001 to 2002, Reinfeldt was chairman of the justice committee of the Swedish parliament.

"The New Moderates"

Main article: Moderate Party

Under Reinfeldt's leadership, the Moderate Party has adjusted its position in the political spectrum, moving towards the centre. To reflect these changes, the party's unofficial name was altered to the "The New Moderates" (Swedish: De Nya Moderaterna) in order to emphasize the break with the past.[13] The Moderate Party also calls itself "Sweden's new workers' party" (Swedish: Sveriges nya arbetarparti) which sounds similar to the Swedish Social Democratic Party which calls itself "Sweden's Social Democratic Workers' Party" (Swedish: Sveriges socialdemokratiska arbetareparti). The Moderate Party (Swedish: : the Moderate Coalition Party, commonly referred to in Swedish as Moderaterna: the Moderates) is a liberal conservative political party in Sweden. ...

The Moderate Party is starting to focus more on calls for tax cuts for low- and middle-income groups, rather than on major tax cuts more benefiting high-income earners. Also, as leader of the Moderate Party, Reinfeldt has tended to be less forceful in his criticism of the Swedish welfare state than his predecessors. Reinfeldt has instead proposed reforms to Sweden's welfare state, which include cutting taxes for the lowest income earners and reducing unemployment benefits, in order to encourage the jobless to return to work.[6] He has toned down calls within the party for dismantling large portions of the Swedish welfare state, stating that change must come gradually from the bottom up and not dictated from the top down.[5] Reinfeldt's goal is said to be to fine-tune the welfare state, by focusing on getting people off welfare benefits and in to employment. He has worked to shift the conservatives toward the middle ground by convincing voters that he would fix rather than dismantle the public welfare system.[6] A tax cut is a reduction in the rate of tax charged by a government, for example on personal or corporate income. ... Swedish welfare refers to the Swedish variant of the mixed economy prevalent in much of the industrialized world. ...


Reinfeldt has even extended an invitation to the Swedish Trade Union Confederation, a traditional supporter of the Social Democrats and opponents to the Moderate Party.[14] He also changed the Moderate Party's traditional stance towards the Swedish Labour and employment laws, stating that he prefers small changes instead of any radical reform.[15] LO logo The Swedish Trade Union Confederation (Landsorganisationen i Sverige or LO) is an umbrella organisation for sixteen Swedish trade unions that organise blue collar workers. ...

Labour law (American English: labor) or employment law is the body of laws, administrative rulings, and precedents which addresses the legal rights of, and restrictions on, working people and their organizations. ...


People both within and outside the party differ on their analysis of the transformation of the Moderate Party, with some arguing that the party is mainly honing the way it describes its visions, and others suggesting that it constitutes a substantial policy change towards the centre.[16][17][18] As a consequence of Reinfeldt's shift of the Moderate Party to the centre, the differences between the Moderate Party and their traditional opponents the Swedish Social Democratic Party have become harder to discern.[15] In a series of radio and television debates the opposing Social Democrat leader and incumbent Prime Minister Göran Persson portrayed his opponent as a classic conservative in disguise. Persson stated that, if in power, the conservatives would tamper with Sweden's successful formula of high taxes, a large public sector and generous benefits.[19] There is also some criticism within the party, Moderate Youth League chairman Christofer Fjellner has called Reinfeldt's political reform as "leftist rhetoric" (Swedish: vänsterretorik).[15] The Swedish Social Democratic Party, (Swedish: , Social Democratic Workers Party of Sweden), contests elections as Workers Party - Social Democrats (Arbetarepartiet-Socialdemokraterna), commonly referred to just as the Social Democrats (Socialdemokraterna); is the oldest and largest political party in Sweden. ...

Alliance for Sweden

Main article: Alliance for Sweden

In the run-up for the Swedish general election of 2006 Reinfeldt, as leader of the Moderate Party, participated in the creation of the Alliance for Sweden which has united the centre-right in a coalition, which consists of the Moderate Party, Centre Party, Liberal People's Party and Christian Democrats. Reinfeldt is said to have been instrumental in uniting the four parties which previously were known for being notoriously divided in order to present a powerful alternative to the Social Democrats.[5][6] The parties presented a joint election manifesto for the alliance.[5][20] Alliance for Sweden (Swedish: ) is a political alliance in Sweden. ...
