Sweden's nationalist party comes second place in elections – exit poll

Sweden's nationalist party comes second place in elections - exit pollA radical right wing group with a neo-Nazi past was set to become Sweden’s second largest party on Sunday night, after exit polls suggested it had won nearly 20 per cent of the vote.  Sweden Democrats, which blames the country’s recent surge in rapes, sexual assaults and riots on immigrants, came second place in Sunday’s elections according to an exit poll by state broadcaster SVT.  The ruling centre-left Social Democrats were in the lead with 26.2 per cent of the votes, down from 31 per cent in the 2014 election and its lowest score in a century.  However, Stefan Lofven, the Swedish prime minister, will have heaved a sigh of relief at the result for the nationalist Sweden Democrats, which according to earlier polls could have reached first place.  The hard right party, led by 39-year-old Jimmie Akesson, has called for a two-year ban on asylum seekers and wants to ban the niqab, or face veil.  Sweden Democrats also claim immigrants put undue pressure on the country’s cherished welfare state and are are diluting Swedish culture and values. Jimmie Akesson, leader of the right wing party Sverigedemokraterna (Sweden Democrats) If they are confirmed as the largest party, the Social Democrats are likely to form a coalition with the pro-refugee Left party, which has risen in the polls due to its pro-refugee stance, and the Green party.  The centre-right bloc of parties, known as the Alliance, could unseat Mr Lofven if they joined forces with the Sweden Democrats –  but they have so far refused to do.  Far-right parties have made significant gains throughout Europe in recent years after a refugee crisis sparked by civil war in Syria and ongoing conflicts in Afghanistan and parts of Africa. Sweden has taken in more refugees per capita than any other country in Europe, a statistic frequently deployed by the Sweden Democrats on the campaign trail as they called for a border shutdown.  As Mr Lofven cast his ballot in Stockholm on Sunday, heurged Swedes not to vote for the “racist party”. “It’s … about decency, about a decent democracy. And the Social Democrats and a Social Democratic-led government is a guarantee for not letting the Sweden Democrats extremist party, racist party, get any influence in the government,” he said. At the Sweden Democrats’ last rally before polls opened, Mr Akesson accused the socially liberal prime minister of prioritising the needs of asylum seekers over Swedish citizens. “This government we have had now, they have prioritised, during these four years, asylum-seekers…Sweden needs breathing space, we need tight responsible immigration policies,” he said. Once a far-right party with links to neo-Nazi and fascist groups, such as Keep Sweden Swedish, Sweden Democrats has undergone a major detoxification campaign. The group’s old logo of a burning touch, similar to that of the British National Front, has been swapped for a blue and yellow flower, while a “zero tolerance” policy on racism has been adopted. Some voters in Stockholm, a liberal stronghold, said the Sweden Democrats were a welcome shake-up to mainstream politics as they were not afraid to attack immigration policy.  “They should be taken seriously, they have raised serious issues, not just immigration but health care too,” 46-year-old voter Henrik, a doctor, told AFP.  “It’s a problem for democracy if the other party leaders refuse to talk to a party that represents the views of so many people,” his wife Josefine added. “We need to close the borders. It’s what people want – even the Moderates and the Social Democrats. But they refuse to talk about it as an option and we do,” Peter Wallmark, chairman of the Sweden Democrats Stockholm division, told the Telegraph.  “At the moment they are saying they won’t form a coalition with us but that’s because we’re in the middle of a campaign. I’m very confident we will get about 25 per cent of the vote and then they will have to talk to us,” he said .  “I think we could form a coalition with the Moderates. They won’t admit that yet though. He added: “There is a serious problem with Islamic fundamentalists, and we need to address that.”
