National elections

The Swedish National elections are coming up a week from Monday. Currently, a center-right coalition is in power, a rare departure from the left-leaning governments of the past generation.

It appears that the "Alliance", as the coalition is called, leads by a few points in surveys leading up to this year's election. The margin is small, however, and the coalition nature of the parties makes swings in the poll results more likely.

Speaking personally, I like the Alliance's tax policies regarding island stugas, so I am wishing them luck on the 19th.

Sweden.se and TheLocal.se both have good election summaries I plan to visit over the upcoming days.
