Ideologically the party is Social Democrat and has a base of blue-collar workers, intellectuals, and public sector employees. It derives much of its power from strong links with the National Swedish Confederation of Trade Unions or LO, which represents around 90 percent of Sweden's blue-collar workers. The party program combines a commitment to social welfare programs and government direction of the economy.
