PARLIAMENT

Green MPs the most educated

The Swedish Green Party has the highest proportion of university educated Members of Parliament, reports the weekly newspaper Riksdag & Department. The lowest level is found among the Social Democrat parliamentarians.

Every one of the 25 Green MPs has pursued further studies after high school. Hot on their heels come the Liberals - among Folkpartiet's 24 MPs only two did not continue their studies after school.

At the bottom of the scale comes the main opposition party the Social Democrats. About half, or 57 out of 112 MPs, went to college or university.
