Anti-migrant mood boosts far-right party in Swedish election

  • 6 Sep 2018

The vote in the Swedish elections on Sunday will be the first since the nation of 10 million accepted 163,000 migrants in 2015.

Seven million Swedish voters go to the polls on Sunday in what could be the country's most important election in decades. 

The populist anti-immigration Sweden Democrats are surging in the polls, and they could become the second-largest party. 

That could make forming a coalition government much harder and is forcing many Swedes to consider what kind of country theirs should be.
