Immigration and integration are the top two issues for voters ahead of next year's general election.

A Kantar Sifo poll on behalf of TV4 questioned a little over 1,000 Swedes last week on the issue they believe will dominate the 2018 election debate, and what issues were most important to them.

It found that immigration and integration came out top on both counts.

"We found that people think that immigration and integration will be the most important question at the next election but when asked for their own important issue, the answer is still immigration but not to the same extent," Toivo Sjörén, head of opinion research at Kantar Sifo tells Radio Sweden.

More than one out of three of those questioned, 38 percent, believe that integration and immigration will dominate the election debate. Other issues that rank highly on voters’ 2018 importance list include healthcare (13 percent), and schools and education (7 percent).

Twenty one percent said that immigration is the most important issue for them personally, followed by healthcare (15 percent), school and education (12 percent).
