Also, it looks like the Sweden Democrats will not be shut out of parliamentary committees – something that the press discussed earlier this week. The Social Democrats group leader in parliament told Swedish Radio news that they do not want to change the number of committee seats to keep out the other party. He said that it is an issue of democracy and respect for voters.
And finally, some of the candidates who had run as Sweden Democrats in the general elections are now jumping ship. News agency TT reports that one local candidate cited that he would "risk his family's security" if he went through with his plans to represent the party.
