Swedish population voted against Immigration rules by electing Anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats
STOCKHOLM: The results of Swedish general elections speak what Swedish population thinks about current Immigration rules. The anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats bagged around 13 percent votes and now stands as third-largest party and the “absolute kingmaker” in the legislature.
The Sweden Democrats or Swedish Democrats are a far-right right-wing party and anti-immigration political party in Sweden that was founded in 1988. The party describes itself as social conservative with a nationalist foundation
The Sweden Democrats believe that the current Swedish immigration and integration policies have been a failure. SD opposes. It feels that the current situation with a large number of immigrants living in cultural enclaves is not beneficial for the country. They argue that the immigrants themselves are rootless, that there have been rising antagonistic tensions between various population groups (socially, ethnically, religiously and culturally), and the immigration in itself, SD says, has caused social and economic strains on the country.
Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt conceded defeat late on Sunday with the vote counting almost complete.
“We didn’t make it,” said Fredrik Reinfeldt adding he would hand in his resignation Monday.
