There are still a few votes to be counted, but Andersen, who became Sweden’s first female prime minister last year, said the results showed a victory for the right-wing bloc.


“Breaking the Adaptive Migration Policy.” The electoral success of the far-right in Sweden may exceed national priorities

“That is why tomorrow (Thursday) I will ask for the speaker to be relieved of his post,” Anderson told reporters at a news conference. According to her, it is important for Sweden to have a new government as soon as possible.

The right-wing opposition bloc includes so far, in addition to the Swedish Democrats, the Moderate Coalition Party, the Liberals, and the Christian Democratic Party. After the elections, it seemed that he would win only one seat, but according to the latest election results, he would get 176 seats in the 349-seat parliament, while the left would get 173. The results should be officially confirmed by the end of the week.

Anti-immigration policy

The election results represent a turning point for Sweden, as the anti-immigration Swedish Democrats, with whom all major parties have refused to cooperate in the past, are likely to influence government policy.

The party, which entered parliament for the first time in 2010, is believed to have received 20.6 percent of the vote. The Moderate Alliance Party gained 19.1 percent.

Swedish Democrats leader Jimmy Akesson declared the right-wing coalition a victory and asserted that his party would be a “constructive and leading force” in the work to restore security in Sweden.
