Party leader Nils Lundgren

"Chaotic" Conference for Sagging June List

The small political party the June List held its first conference as a party fielding parliamentary candidates during the weekend.

The June List was formed to run on a Euro-skeptic platform in the 2004 elections to the European Parliament. It received a surprising 14 percent of the vote, third highest among Swedish parties. But a poll released Sunday indicates the June List has only the support of 0.6 percent of Swedes for September’s parliamentary elections, well below the 4 percent threshold for representation.

According to press reports, the conference was relatively chaotic. Nils Lundgren was confirmed as party leader.

The new poll also indicated a 2.5 percent drop for the opposition Liberal Party, down to 9.2 percent. The ruling Social Democrats and their Left and Green party parliamentary allies hold a 1.6 percent edge over the four party opposition alliance.
