Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to gain a better understanding of the non-binding political instrument, the so-called “tillkännagivandeinstitutet”, within the framework of opposition in the Swedish Parliamentary system.

The study springs from the following research questions: what characterises a “tillkännagivande”, how has the use of this instrument changed during the past five electoral periods and to what extent could this instrument be seen as an expression for opposition? A number of 150 units of analysis, from five electoral periods, have been examined. I have systematically examined the political instrument by developing an instrument for analysis where the presence of criticism, the precision of the request, the strength of the request and the relation to the government proposal have been measured. The results show that the instrument has become more precise, stronger and direct over time. Apart from that, the instrument has been used in a more dynamic way then before and as a more proactive approach. The instrument can be used to scrutinize the government or to provide political alternatives, which suggest that it can be seen as an expression for opposition. The results show a pattern that indicates a strengthening in partisan conflict between the parties in the Swedish Parliament. I therefore conclude that the instrument has become a more popular instrument of the opposition than before. To be able to draw any conclusions on why this change has occurred, more research in the area is needed. However, this study point in a direction where the instrument has become a popular instrument to, in different ways, put pressure on the government.
