Sweden Democrats loses third spot on the Swedish political party rank

Sunday, 17 November 2013
The Swedish far right party,  Sweden Democrats has slipped down the aisle in a rare move which sees the Green Party and the Left Party shift forward in a new opinion poll.

The poll conducted by polling organisation In Sifo for the Swedish dailies  Svenska Dabladet and Göteborg Posten for the month of November shows a surprise slope for the far right party, Sweden Democrats. It has therefore givens the mantle for the country’s third largest party to the Greens.

The Red-Green bloc now has a majority without the support of any other party and hold a 12 points lead over the governing Alliance parties according to the poll.

Although the Social Democrats fell back a bit, the Centre Party and the Christian Democrats revolves around the 4 percent parliamentary accession threshold mark. Any change are said to be within the margin of error.
