Breaking world news | Electoral defeat for the government of an EU nation

Ulf Kristersson, the leader of the Moderate Party, has narrowly gained a majority in the Swedish parliament.



Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson acknowledged defeat on Wednesday, and as a result, a four-party opposition coalition led by Ulf Kristersson of the Moderate Party was declared the winner of the general election in Sweden. The right-wing bloc is on course to win 176 seats to the left-173 wing's seats with only a small number of ballots still to be counted four days after Sunday's razor-thin vote, the nation's electoral commission was quoted by Reuters as saying.


The first female prime minister of Sweden, Andersson, stated during a press conference that "in parliament, they have a one or two seat advantage." Although it is a slim majority, it exists.


According to Kristofferson, "I will now begin the process of building a new government that can get things done, a government for all of Sweden and all citizens." The coalition partner Sweden Democrats, who are projected to receive 20.6% of the vote, narrowly defeated his party, which received 19.1% of the vote.


The Sweden Democrats are quite popular with people, however, some conservative groups are less likely to support them broadly because of their anti-immigration attitude. Andersson capitalized on these anxieties by admitting that she concurred with certain voters' reservations about the prominence of her party's opponents.


Stockholm, which for years welcomed more immigrants than any other country in Europe, has suddenly admitted that it cannot provide them with financial aid or force them to abide by its rules, sending the hitherto hospitable Swedes into the arms of the burgeoning anti-immigration movement. After violent riots broke out in various towns as a result of an anti-Muslim politician's publicity stunt of burning the Quran, Andersson acknowledged earlier this year that migrant integration was "very poor" and the society in charge of maintaining order "too weak." Over 40% of Swedes who were polled in 2016 felt that the country's immigrant population, which has doubled over the past 20 years and now makes up 5% of the population, is too high.


After eight years in office, voters ousted the Social Democrats for a variety of reasons, not just immigration. Sweden is experiencing an economic crisis, much like the rest of Europe, and could see a recession as early as next year. Its NATO application, which it submitted alongside Finland's in support of Ukraine, has not yet been granted because Turkey objects to images showing numerous left-wing MPs brandishing flags of a group it has designated as a terrorist organization.
