Sweden’s Riksdag (National Election) Results for my Friends not Residing in Sweden.

I waited for all of the votes to be counted (forgive the the absence of the graphical view (that I promised in my earlier post, the one I’d preferred is no longer available.  There is a table below for the interested parties)).  However, I want my non Swedes to know, that some natives or their parties may not be happy with the final count and some of us ‘American’s” may tease that this could be their “hanging chad”!

My new country (Sweden), have the right to call for a new election if the government appears to be  ineffective.  This could happen in either different local(s) or nationally.  I’m wait with baited breath (before ‘moi’ blog further on the subject)  if there are discrepancies or challenges that may, could or could not creep to the surface.
