Bildt has been a one-man diplomatic force against Russian aggression.

On Saturday night there will be a final live television debate between Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt who leads the Moderate Party and Social Democrat leader Stefan Löfven. The Alliance has governed for the past four years – since 2010 (they have been in a minority).

@carlbildt @elmsatersvard och Anders Borg om varför åtta framgångsår måste fortsätta #Val2014

Carlbildt, Elmsatersvard and Anders Borg

Borg, the centre-right finance minister since 2006, warns loudly against tax rises by the centre-left and some Swedish businessmen are warning about the dangers from the Social Democrats. A bigger risk is that a Social Democrat-led government may stop or reverse public-sector reform.

And there is the shadow cast by a belligerent Russia. The centre-right wants to push up defence spending, which many Social Democrats dislike. Within Europe Mr Bildt has been a one-man diplomatic force against Russian aggression.

The Swedish Elections take place on Sunday 14 September with voting closing at 8pm.
