On 24 November, it is planned that all parliamentary parties except the Sweden Democrats will vote for comprehensive changes to the Basic Law carrying strong negative impact on Sweden (Government Bill 2009/10: 80 / / 2009 / 10: Ku4).
The amendments proposed entail mainly the following:
- It becomes harder to walk out of the European Union than the Swedish people would like because it will require a change in the constitution before it can be done. Thus erodes Swedes’ ability to influence their own future.
- Multiculturalism becomes entrenched in that the wording of the Constitution to promote ethnic, cultural and religious groups is imperative. Thus consolidating the policy that has been for almost 40 years and which we believe have been disastrous.
- The significance of Swedish citizenship becomes meaningless as to foreigners in general are equated with Swedish citizens and thus enjoy the same rights. Moreover, it removes the requirement for Swedish citizenship at positions of a sensitive nature, which means that foreigners are allowed to have important social and structural positions.
Since Sweden joined the EU in 1995 there has been a marginalization of parliament and a depletion of popular government and the state of affairs has been compounded for each Treaty revision has been made since then – the Amsterdam Treaty, Nice Treaty and later the Treaty of Lisbon.
With the Lisbon Treaty having precedence over EU law formally Sweden’s constitutional laws. The past case law to Union law has an explicit priority over national laws treaty attached.
With the new clause introduced by the constitutional amendments will be Sweden’s EU membership and the Lisbon Treaty Constitution protected. It was the Treaty of Lisbon as the center-right alliance parties and Social Democrats voted for in parliament November 20, 2008 without consulting the Swedish people in a referendum. If parliament now votes for amendment to the constitution it commits a further betrayal of the Swedish people.
Neither the EU nor multiculturalism has a sufficiently strong support in Sweden that these phenomena should be supported in the Swedish constitution. Nor do Swedish people look favorably on the fact that our citizenship is eroded and the foreigners to a far greater degree will be able to enjoy the rights previously reserved for those who have Swedish citizenship.
Sweden Democrats are, as the only party opposed to these major changes and believe that there must be a public debate on this so that the Swedish people are aware of the changes that are being pushed through, and that the Swedish people have their say.
The SD are now initiating an effort to collect names from all those who want Parliament to reject the proposal at Nov 24.
