After Moderates and Sweden Democrats meet

Is Sweden seeing a new political bloc ?

Is Sweden seeing a new political bloc ?
This week saw the first official meeting between the leaders of the Moderate Party and the Sweden Democrats, a far cry from when the party first entered parliament and were universally shunned

.

Ulf Kristersson, leader of the Moderates, the biggest party on the right, sat down with his Sweden Democrat counterpart, Jimmie Åkesson on Wednesday to discuss issues like crime, immigration and energy.

Nicholas Aylott, associate professor of political science at Södertörn University, says this meeting could have major implications for the next general election.

"It means there is the realistic prospect of two reasonably big parties and one small party campaigning, maybe not in a new alliance, but with the understanding that the first preference of each of those parties is to govern together after the next election," Aylott tells Radio Sweden.

Kristersson is the second party leader to meet with Åkesson, after the embargo was broken first by Ebba Busch Thor of the Christian Democrats this summer.

Poll places Sweden Democrats as nation’s second largest party

A new poll from Statistics Sweden has the Sweden Democrats as the second largest political party in Sweden.

Who would Swedes vote for if there was an election today?

According to the survey, the party is just 3.7 percent behind the Social Democrats who have just over a quarter of the vote.

At the bottom of the poll is the Liberal party who are on the brink of losing their place in Swedish parliament, hovering just above the 4 percent limit.

The poll was carried out between October 28 to November 26 and asked more than 9,000 eligible voters in Sweden which party they would vote for if a parliamentary election was held in the next few days.
