"I'm not here to discuss pensions"
10 min

Anton Abele, activist, debater and teenager can now add politician to his resumé. After campaigning for a seat in Parliament in this year's General Election, the 18-year-old finished in fifteenth place on the conservative Moderate party list. While the polls didn't guarantee him the position as Sweden's youngest MP ever, a re-shuffle within Stockholm's local council did, freeing up a spot in the national parliament for him and he took up office in October. Christine Demsteader went to meet him, a few weeks into the job.
