Sweden Democrat leader Jimmy Åkesson, on the edge

Opposition Lead Slips

A public opinion survey shows a slight recovery by right and center parties.

According to the SIFO poll the Christian Democrats, a member of Sweden’s four-party right-of-center coalition, have risen above the 4 percent threshhold for parliamentary representation and have the support of 5.3 percent of the electorate.

The survey also shows the anti-immigrant Swedish Democrat Party at 3.7 percent, just under the 4 percent threshhold.

However, the poll published in daily newspapers ”Svenska Dagbladet” and ”Göteborgsposten”, still shows the three opposition parties enjoying a comfortable margin over the government coalition, with 51.7 percent supporting the opposition, and 43.9 percent backing the government.
