Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt on Tuesday announced his new cabinet after stating a 30 page statement of government policies in the parliament.

There are seven new ministers in his new cabinet. Jan Bjorklund, leader of the Liberal Party became the new Vice Prime Minister, in charge of education, to replace Maud Olofsson who is the leader of Center Party.

Carl Bildts remains to be foreign minister and Anders Borg finance minister.

Reinfeldt said that his new minority government will seek a broad-based and responsible solutions in the Riksdag, Swedish Parliament. That means it will be natural for his government to hold regular discussions with the Green Party, in the first instance and also the Social Democratic Party where appropriate.

"We want to take responsibility for our country and create good conditions for work and welfare, to lay the foundations for a fair society that stands together, a society in which people can feel safe and secure, take their own initiatives and realize their ambitions," he said.

"If we continue to take responsibility, show consideration for one another and act with a view to the long term, the Sweden of the future can be a stronger country than ever before," he said.

Reinfeldt became Sweden's prime minister for a second term after the Sept. 19 general election this year with the challenge of a minority government in the parliament since the Swedish Democratic Party came to the Parliament with 20 seats for the first time.
