Prime Minister before election

Magdalena Andersson
Social Democrats

Prime Minister after election

Ulf Kristersson
Moderate

General elections were held in Sweden on 11 September 2022 to elect the 349 members of the Riksdag who in turn elected the Prime Minister of Sweden. Under the constitution, regional and municipal elections were also held on the same day. The preliminary results presented on 15 September showed the government parties lost their majority, which were confirmed by the final results published on 17 September. After a month of negotiations following the elections that led to the Tidö Agreement among the right-wing bloc, Moderate Party (M) leader Ulf Kristersson was elected prime minister on 17 October. The Kristersson cabinet is a minority government that relies on confidence and supply from the Sweden Democrats (SD).

Following the

Andersson Cabinet
from that time on, with C, V, and MP providing confidence and supply for the government.

The campaign period was met with issues regarding the

2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, as well as crime, energy, the economy, and immigration. Parliamentary parties campaigned through July and August, while in late August SD surpassed M in opinion polls. Exit polls showed that S and its confidence-and-supply parties had a narrow lead against the right-leaning bloc (SD, M, KD, L). During the counting of the preliminary results and later on, Sweden's Election Authority
said that the right-leaning bloc overtook the left-leaning bloc (S, V, C, MP) by three seats. Andersson conceded the election three days later, and resigned the day after that.

The election saw massive swings between the two blocs in different regions. The left-leaning bloc won the most votes in large cities and several university towns with unprecedented massive margins. This included major relative gains across the capital region and also flipping two suburban municipalities in Stockholm County. Meanwhile, the right managed to overturn dozens of municipalities that had historically been dominated by S, especially in the central interior Bergslagen region. In this historically industrial area, the county of Dalarna was won by the right-leaning coalition for the first time in history, while the left held on by just 373 votes in Värmland. Likewise, some municipalities that the outright leftist parties (S, V, MP) had won with an overall majority of 50 points in the 1994 Swedish general election, flipped to the right.

Major gains in minority were also made by the right-leaning bloc in

northern Sweden, leading the vote in eight municipalities compared to none four years prior. In the lower east, the historically leftist swing counties Kalmar, Södermanland, Västmanland, and Östergötland
all went to the right to seal the majority. S won 30% of the popular vote, with a net increase in spite of the election loss. SD became the second-largest party with above 20% of the popular vote, surpassing M at 19%. The blocs were separated by a thin margin of about half a percentage point. The parties aligned with the outgoing government did somewhat better in the regional and municipal elections.

Background

The

far-right party, won 62 seats.[3][4]

Ulf Kristersson, leader of the Moderate Party (M), was given the task of forming the government, and opened up to SD after previously ruling out an alliance with them upon assuming the party leadership in 2017 and during the 2018 election campaign. In turn, the Centre Party (C) and Liberals (L) declined to back his candidacy, as Kristersson wanted SD to take part in the government.[5][6][7] Löfven was later given the task, although he also failed to form a government.[8] Speaker of the Riksdag, Andreas Norlén, set another vote to be held in January, and Löfven formed a deal between S, MP, C, L, and the Left Party (V). Löfven was re-elected on 18 January 2019 with S and MP voting in favour, while C, L, and V abstained.[9]

Löfven's government

The first confirmed case of

centre-right and radical-right parties cooperate.[12] In August 2020, the right-wing opposition criticised the Löfven government for a perceived failure to deal with rising crime including gun violence, which Kristersson called a "second pandemic".[13]

During his premiership, Löfven abolished the

Swedish politics and opened up to SD. By autumn 2021, the right-wing opposition (M, SD, KD, L) formed an informal agreement for a future M–KD government headed by Kristersson of the Moderate Party as prime minister with the external support of L and SD.[24][25]

Andersson's government

The Social Democrats held a party congress on 4 November 2021, to elect a new leader; former Minister for Finance, Magdalena Andersson, succeeded Löfven as the leader of the party.[26] Speaker Norlén proposed Andersson to form a government, and after securing a deal with V, Andersson was elected as prime minister on 24 November.[27][28] MP pulled out of confidence and supply for her government, which led to Andersson's resignation seven hours after her election as prime minister.[29][30][31] MP quit the government due to the passage of the opposition's budget in place of that of the government.[32]

Speaker Norlén nominated Andersson again, and on 29 November she was re-elected with 101 votes in favour and 75 abstentions.[33][34][35] Considering that MP did not vote in favour of the government, the Andersson Cabinet would be only composed of members of S.[36] Heading into the 2022 general election, Andersson's leadership moved the Social Democrats to the left after the publication of a May 2021 party report, "Distributional Policies for Equality and Fairness", which criticised the rising inequalities that emerged from political decisions by previous left and right governments.[37]

Following the beginning of the

2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, Andersson's government applied with Finland to join NATO on 18 May 2022, despite the historical opposition of Social Democrats to NATO.[38][39] During the vote in the Riksdag, only MP and V voted against joining NATO.[40] In July the government signed the accession protocol to join NATO.[41] Andersson's government received high approval ratings.[42]

Electoral system

The Riksdag is made up of 349 seats, and all are elected through open list, proportional representation on multi-member party lists.[43]

Of the 349 seats, 310 are elected within the 29 constituencies. The number of members per district ranges from 2 to 40. The remainder - the 39 other members - are apportioned nationally as

levelling seats
to ensure a proportional result. They are allocated to particular districts.

Were a party to win more constituencies than it is entitled to overall, a redistribution of constituency seats may occur to reduce the number of constituency seats won by that party.[44]

Sweden has the distinction of having elections on a fixed date with a parliamentary system in which early elections can be called. In the latter case, the newly elected legislature would serve the remainder of the four-year term begun by the previous legislature. Elections are organised on the second Sunday of September every four years, at the same time as the municipal and regional elections.[45][46][47]

Each of the 29 constituencies has a set number of parliamentarians that is divided through constituency results to ensure regional representation. The other

parliamentarism in a constitutional monarchy
—ensuring that the government is responsible to the people's representatives. A minimum of 4% of the national vote, or alternatively 12% or more within a constituency, is required for a party to enter the Riksdag. Were the latter to occur, the party only gains representation within that constituency's seat share.

In Swedish elections, voters may openly pick up several party-specific ballots, and then, in the

ballot secrecy.[48] This was changed in the 2022 election.[49] Election officials are responsible for party-specific ballot papers being present in the voting places for parties that have obtained more than one per cent of the votes in the previous parliamentary election.[50] A voter may write in the party name of choice on a blank ballot paper to cast a vote if there is no access to the desired party-specific ballot paper.[51]

Campaign

Issues

Political parties campaigning in Uppsala on 11 August 2022
Political parties campaigning in Uppsala

After the beginning of the

NATO accession of Sweden, as well as of neighbouring Finland. Opinion polls after the invasion had showed that a majority of respondents supported the accession of Sweden, a militarily non-aligned country,[52] to NATO for the first time.[53] The Swedish Social Democratic Party (S) and Sweden Democrats (SD), who had historically favoured neutrality, revised their stance on the issue and stated their support for joining NATO.[39][54] The Green Party (MP) remained opposed, while the Left Party (V) stated that they would opt for a referendum on the subject.[55][56]

Crime was a key campaign issue.[57][58][59] Issues regarding immigration also played a key role during the campaign period,[60] and issues related to gang crime were talked about the most.[61] Additionally, issues regarding energy, healthcare, law and order, education, economy, and environment were also talked about during the campaign period.[62][63][64]

Party campaigns

The Social Democrats published their election manifesto, in which the party had promised to tackle issues regarding crime, welfare, climate, green industry, and rising prices.[65] It had also called for automatic preschool for three-year-old children.[66] During their campaign, the Social Democrats voiced support for nuclear power.[67] Andersson criticised the Moderate Party's proposal regarding property tax warnings.[68] The Moderate Party stated that it would want to reduce immigration to the "same levels as Denmark and Norway"; additionally, it would want to make asylum laws more restrictive and to abolish the "track change system", which allows rejected asylum seekers to apply for work permits.[69] Kristersson proposed that the state should set a price threshold for energy bills.[70] The Sweden Democrats campaigned on lowering asylum migration to "close to zero", as well as introducing longer prison sentences.[71][72] Åkesson also stated his support for stricter work permits.[73] In August the Sweden Democrats surged in opinion polls due to their tough stance on crime and immigration, surpassing the Moderate Party.[61][74][75]

In August Lööf stated that she would want the

green technology and infrastructure, and also criticised the parties on the right.[77] She also stated that the Left Party would work with parties on the left to form a government.[78] The Christian Democrats (KD) campaigned on installing more security cameras and increasing funding in resources for the police to fight gang crime. Busch called for the re-opening of Ringhals Nuclear Power Plant, as well as expanding water and wind production.[77] The Liberals (L) stated their support for more investments into solar, wind, and nuclear power. Additionally, the Liberals stated that they would want to lower taxes on electricity, especially VAT and excise taxes.[77] In August 2022 there was an internal conflict among the Liberals regarding campaigning on a bus tour that would have included SD.[79] Pehrson responded by stating that the four parties (M, SD, KD, L) would visit a nuclear power plant together, and described it as "hardly a big ideological question". There was also internal criticism regarding cooperating with SD on the budget.[80] The Green Party campaigned on climate and social issues, including investment and expansion of rail/train transport in Sweden, and replacing fossil fuels and diesel with renewable fuels, as well as protecting free media and initiating a citizenship initiative system to allow in part for legislation proposed by citizens.[77]

exit polls that were published by Sveriges Television and TV4, the bloc around the Swedish Social Democratic Party (S) showed a tight lead against the bloc around the Moderate Party (M).[101][102] It was also reported that the Sweden Democrats (SD) surpassed M in the number of votes, and suggested that it could become the second-largest parliamentary party.[103] S also won more votes in comparison with the 2018 Swedish general election.[104]

Sweden's Election Authority stated that the bloc that composed of M, SD, Christian Democrats (KD), and Liberals (L) overtook the bloc around S by one to three seats during the counting of the preliminary results.[105] The gap between the two blocs was around 50,000 votes.[106] Ulf Kristersson, the M leader, stated that "the results would be likely known by Wednesday" and he thanked his voters, while Jimmie Åkesson, the SD leader, stated that SD would play a "central role" in the power shift.[107] Kristersson also said that a change in the numbers of seats is possible.[108] As overseas and some postal votes were to be counted, the incumbent prime minister Magdalena Andersson stated that "it is too close to call the election".[109] Some analysts have seen the rise of the Nuance Party, mainly aimed at the country's Muslim population, as one of the causes of the losses in the left bloc.[110]

SD's election night vigil in Stockholm attracted controversy after the party refused to grant access to several foreign language media and after the party's chief of staff

Sieg Heil" chant. Fallenkvist subsequently told Expressen that she had aimed to provoke the media into overinterpretations before later telling Dagens Nyheter that she had misspoke and meant to say "segerhelg", which would translate to "victory weekend".[112] In late October, an SD candidate who had been elected to the Nynäshamn City Council resigned as a councillor after a media investigation found that she had been an active member of the neo-Nazi Nordic Resistance Movement for two decades.[113]

European parliamentary group of which L is part, has been critical of the Liberals being part of a government including SD.[122]

Despite the right-wing majority, no government had been formed by the opening of the newly elected

Second Deputy Speaker of the Riksdag required a second ballot after the first ballot fell three votes short of the required majority.[125][126][127]

Government formation

Kristersson on his way to the Speaker, October 2022

On 19 September, Speaker Andreas Norlén, after talks with representatives of the Riksdag parties and a discussion with the Deputy Speakers, tasked Ulf Kristersson of the Moderate Party (M) with probing the conditions for forming a government.[128] On 12 October, Kristersson reported to the speaker and requested two more days to get his government documents together.[129] On 14 October, Kristersson announced to the Speaker of the Riksdag that he was ready to form a government with the Christian Democrats (KD) and the Liberals (L), with the support of the Sweden Democrats (SD). The four parties' written agreement with Kristersson as Prime Minister for the 2022–2026 term is called the Tidö Agreement.[130][131] With the agreement, named after the place where it was negotiated, this is the first time SD have formalised influence over a government's policy.[132]

On 17 October, the Riksdag voted 176 to 173 in favour of Kristersson becoming prime minister under the four parties' agreement.

absolute majority.[136][137] It is the first time SD will hold direct government influence.[138] Two European Union lawmakers, one from the Left Party, criticised the centre-right and M in particular, as a member of the European People's Party, for allying with the far right,[139] as did opposition leaders led by S.[140]
