A huge win for populist ‘Sweden Democrats’

In the parliamentary elections in Sweden put the anti-migratiepartij Sweden Democrats, as expected, a big step forward.

In the first exit polls from the Swedish television station SVT climbs the right-populist party Sweden Democrats to 19.2 percent of the votes. A centre-right block reaches 39.6 percent of the votes. It does this slightly better than the incumbent centre-left governing coalition. The social democrats and greens come together with their left-wing allies to 39,4 percent of the votes. The social democrats, now the prime minister, the beaches on 26,2%, the greens at 4.2% and the radical left-wing Vänsterpartiet 9%.

Moderaterna, the largest party of the centre-right block, and obtains, according to the polls, 17.8 percent of the votes.

The theme of migration, controlled the election campaign. Sweden Democrats stand for a hard anti-immigration policy. All other parties have cooperation with the party now excluded. If both the left and the right block so about forty percent of the vote fetches, is heading to Sweden again to a minority government.

Soon more.
