Slim Majority of Swedes Against Euro
A small majority of Swedes remain opposed to joining the European single currency, the Euro, that’s according to a new poll.
In the survey published by Statistics Sweden, 51 percent of those asked said they would vote to reject the currency in a referendum, a slight fall from the 54 percent reported in May this year.
The poll shows that the number of those in favour of trading in the Swedish Crown for the Euro has edged higher, with 35 percent saying they would back membership of the Euro, up from 33 percent in May.
Sweden has been a member of the European Union since 1995, but rejected joining the single currency in a referendum held in September 2003.
The poll was carried out among over 9,000 people in October and November.
