– It was the dumbest thing Stefan Löfven could do. To physically fend off Annie Loof looked like a textbook example of rule technology. He must regret it deeply, writes Lena Mellin in Aftonbladet.

Lotta Groening, columnist in the Express, is slightly milder in its conclusion.
– Perhaps lost Stefan Löfven his stardom in the interaction region tonight. Annie Loof got him to take to his arms and shoulder free. It was not a particularly good action from a prime ministerial candidate who built much of its credibility by reaching out to all parties. Where there was a – zero to Annie Loof, writes Groening.
