DescriptionCenter-left party and Sweden's predominant, holding power uninterruptedly from 1936 to 1976. Party supports and may have invented the 'mixed economic system' concept, tempering a market economy with a very high regulatory and tax regime in order to achieve a 'cradle-to-grave' welfare society. Party began to lose its grip as economic factors and societal changes brought about its ousting in 1976. Party decided to reform itself by first clearing out its 'hard left' elements (who were self-dubbed the 'Trotskyists') and adopting a platform of deregulation and free-market principles in the 1980s. Party has been chaired since January 27, 2012 by Stefan Löfven, Sweden's Prime Minister since October 3, 2014 [Officially the 'Social Democratic Workers' Party of Sweden Party'; Sveriges Socialdemokratiska Arbetareparti (SAP); called 'Arbetarepartiet - Socialdemokraterna' on ballot papers].
