Parties may find loopholes in funding law

As of April it will become more difficult for Sweden's political parties to accept anonymous party donations, but there are loopholes in the new legislation, Swedish Radio News reports.

The new rules say that parties that accept anonymous donations would be stripped of their state funding, but that only applies to the national organisations and national and European election candidates. Local party groups could still accept cash anonymously, and the national party would not be affected.

The Sweden Democrats are the only party to oppose the new rules, and say they are investigating the alternatives.
