20 years since EU referendum
A majority of Swedes are still positive about the Europe Union some 20 years after the country voted to join the political bloc in a national referendum.
An online Sifo opinion poll done for Swedish Television shows that, of the 1,000 respondents, 57 percent said they were pro-EU while only 23 percent said they were opposed.
On November 13, 1994, nearly 5.5 million Swedes headed to the polls to vote in the non-binding referendum on membership for the Union. Roughly 52 percent voted in favor of joining while 47 percent were against.
