It’s already been four years since Swedes last voted on a new parliament and chose representatives for municipal and county councils. And on September 19th, the polls will open once again.
Will Sweden end up with its first female prime minister? Will a centre-right government manage to win an unprecedented a second term in power? And what’s at stake in the races for municipalities and counties?
Over the next two weeks, The Local will publish several articles designed to help readers get their heads around the different parties and some of their respective positions on a range of issues.
