The Nuance Party (Swedish: Partiet Nyans) is an Islamist[7][8] political party in Sweden founded in 2019. According to national broadcaster Sveriges Television (SVT), the party aims at the country's Muslim population.[9]


The Nuance Party was founded in August 2019 by Mikail Yüksel, a Turkish-born politician who had been expelled from the Centre Party for alleged links to the Turkish ultranationalist group the Grey Wolves.[10] In his founding statement, he said that Islamophobia should be a criminal offence, and that Sweden's Muslims should have a constitutional definition as a minority.[11] The party was officially launched in September 2019 and registered with Sweden's Election Authority on 31 October 2019 to contest the 2022 Swedish general election, as well as the 2024 European Parliament election in Sweden.[12]

Islamic bank; he was accused by politicians from other parties of spreading conspiracy theories during the campaign, as he falsely claimed that Sweden can imprison Muslims for up to a year without trial or evidence.[14][15]

In August 2022, Scania newspapers Helsingborgs Dagblad and Sydsvenskan found that five of Nuance's 25 candidates in the county had spread hate speech about Jews and Shia Muslims, COVID-19 misinformation, or 9/11 conspiracy theories. Three of the candidates were expelled due to the findings.[16][17]


The Nuance Party accuses Swedish social services of forcing Muslim children into foster care and assimilation, accusations which have been picked up by foreign broadcasters including TRT World and Al Jazeera and rejected as false in Sweden.[18][19] The party supports criminalising Quran desecration, such as the public burnings by activist Rasmus Paludan that preceded the 2022 Sweden riots that April.[20]

The party put up a billboard in

DENK, a minority-focused party in the Netherlands, and said that while it could possibly enter local politics in Malmö, it was unlikely to enter the Riksdag.[22]
