Sweden’s right-wing to win majority of parliamentary seats – preliminary election result


The leader of the Moderate party Ulf Kristersson arrives in Strangnas (Sweden) on September 11, 2022.



Sweden’s right-wing opposition parties were on track for a narrow majority (175 seats) in the 349-seat parliament. This beat the ruling centre-left. The country’s election authority stated that 78% of the districts had reported results.

If Ulf Kristersson, the Moderate Party leader, is expected to be confirmed and become prime minister. The far-right Sweden Democrats, which are anti-immigration, would be the largest right-wing group, and have direct influence over policy.
