Fringe Parties Could Enter Parliament

Published söndag 19 juli 2009 kl 10.59
Pirate Party's Christian Engström was elected to the EU Parliament in June

Both the xenophobic Sweden Democrats and the pro-file sharing Pirate Party have crossed the crucial four per cent threshold to enter the Swedish Parliament, according to a poll published in Sunday's edition of tabloid Aftonbladet.

The survey asked 1,914 people 'which party would you vote for if there was an election today?' The results were surprising - the Sweden Democrats got 4.1 per cent and the Pirate Party 4.2 per cent.

Carl Melin, of company United Minds, which carried out the survey via the internet, says that it is surprising that the Pirate Party's support has held steady - but that the rise in support for the Sweden Democrats is less surprising.

Other results: Social Democrats 31.4 per cent; Green Party 10 per cent; Left Party 6.7 per cent; the conservative Moderates 26.8 per cent; the Folk Party (liberals) 6.5 per cent; the rural Center Party 4.5 per cent and the Christian Democrats 4 per cent, with 1.8 per cent going to various small parties.
