    Louise Meijer, an MP for Sweden’s centrist Moderate party, apologised to voters for her previous position on open borders. She regrets “making mistakes” by “pleading for openness and refugees [being] welcome”, she says. Meijer says she “changed her mind” over her views, in an opinion piece for Expressen this week. “Now, instead, I am advocating an even stricter migration policy than the one I opposed at the time,” she says. Political sentiments around migration have shifted swiftly in Sweden, with now even leaders of the Social Democrats saying they favour more strict migration policies. Sweden today is a “completely different...

    For the third time since elections just over two months ago, an attempt will be made to form a new government this week in Sweden. The leader of the "Right" bloc Ulf Kristersson is set for his second try. His Moderate Party with its 70 seats and the Christian Democrats with their 22 seats are proposing a minority government in the 349 seat Parliament (Riksdag). They are hoping other parties will give their support without joining the government but the "Left" bloc is opposed along with some of "Right" parties, the Liberals and Center, if the Sweden Democrats vote to...

    In Sweden, the influx of 163,000 asylum seekers in 2015 - the most in Europe in relation to the country’s population of 10 million - has polarized voters and fractured the political consensus. The ruling center-left Social Democrats and Greens and their Left Party parliamentary allies were seen winning 39.4 percent of the vote, while the opposition center-right Alliance were seen at 39.6 percent. “I think we are going to top 20 percent and maybe a bit more than that, so I am still hopeful it can go up even more than we see now,” Sweden Democrat party secretary Richard...

    Exit poll projects center-left party will win Swedish election, far-right party with white supremacist roots coming in second. STOCKHOLM (AP) — An exit poll indicated that Sweden's first general election since the Scandinavian country accepted a significant number of asylum-seekers was likely to have the center-left party governing now as its winner, but an anti-immigrant party with white supremacist roots placing second in balloting Sunday. Public broadcaster SVT said immediately after polls closed that its exit poll indicated the ruling Social Democrats would remain Sweden's largest party, but making its worst-ever showing with 26.2 percent of the vote.

    Sweden’s prime minister denounced an increasingly popular far-right party as racist and a threat to the nation’s European values Saturday as political candidates made their final pre-election pitches to voters. The parliamentary election being held Sunday will be Sweden’s first since the government in 2015 allowed 163,000 migrants into the country of 10 million. While far less than what Germany took in that year, it was the most per capita of any European nation.

    STOCKHOLM (AFP) - The anti-immigration far-right is expected to soar in Sweden's September 9 general election, capitalising on voter discontent as Swedes punish traditional parties over immigration, integration and health care. Prime Minister Stefan Lofven's Social Democrats, who have dominated Swedish politics since the 1930s, will remain the biggest party in the country but likely with a record low score, polls suggest. The far-right Sweden Democrats (SD) are heading to make the most gains and come in a close second, followed by the conservative Moderates. A Skop institute poll published on Sunday, a week before the election, credited the Social...

    The Sweden Democrats, a far-right and anti-immigration party, have gained momentum and are close behind the nation’s two other largest parties ahead of the September 9th general election, according to a survey on Wednesday. Published by the daily Dagens Nyheter (DN), the Ipsos poll confirmed the Sweden Democrats’ soaring popularity in recent months and the decline in support for the leading Social Democrats, which has lost one-fourth of its voters since the 2014 election. With 20 percent in support, according to Ipsos, the far-right group is gaining on the conservative Moderates (22 percent) and is now only four points behind...

The surge in support comes after a leaders’ debate in which the Sweden Democrats leader Jimmie Åkesson dominated on the subjects of law and order as well as mass migration, winning the debate overall.
