    Nice overview. I’m not absolutely convinced by your depiction of the Centre Party’s challenges, though. Did Olofsson really “abandon the attempts to break (back) into the urban electorate”? Is there any future at all in being a “niche party concentrating on (rural) small entrepreneurs”?

    Olofsson’s project was simple and relentless: to rebrand the party as unequivocally part of the centre-right bloc. It remains to be seen if Annie Johansson – who, despite being only 17, is the only one in the party with genuine star quality – can develop a new strategy that can save the Centre. I wonder what line she will take. Whatever it is, the Alliance is bound to be more rickety now.
