The Swedish general election is to be held on 9 September 2018. They will elect 349 members of the Riksdag (the highest decision-making body in Sweden) who will later vote on the new Prime Minister.
Sweden is a monarchy within a full-democratic multi-party system dominated by the Social Democratic Workers’ Party. This party has held majority or plurality in the parliament for over a century (since 1917). The Social Democratic Party has the most members in the Riksdag (113 out of 349) and is led by Stefan Lofven, Sweden’s Prime Minister since 2014.
The Moderate party led by Ulf Kristersson is the second largest Swedish party, with 84 seats in the Riksdag. This party was the largest governing party from 2006-2014 when the Social Democrats took over. The moderate party will be among the biggest opponents to the Lofven Cabinet in this year’s election, although experts don’t see them winning.
The third biggest party is the Swedish Democrat party led by Jimmie Akesson. It has considerably fewer seats in the Riksdag (49) and is considered a major opponent to the Social Democrats in the 2018 election since the party has grown in popularity in the past few years.
