Contrary to the main members of the European Union (EU), the Nordic countries registered this Sunday (9) a strong advance by left-wing and ecological parties in the elections for the bloc’s parliament.

Sweden, Finland and Denmark, which account for 51 of the 720 seats in Brussels, saw the far right contained, contrary to what was seen in France, Germany and Italy, where nationalist and neo-Nazi parties had resounding victories.

In Sweden, the Social Democratic Party of Sweden obtained 24.9% of the votes and was left with five seats, out of the 21 reserved for the country. The Moderate Party, from the liberal spectrum, was the second most voted with 17.5% of the votes and four seats.

In Finland, the far right won one of the 15 seats allocated to the country in Brussels and just 7.6% of the vote. The Party of Finns was only in fifth place.

The left-wing party Aliança achieved a spectacular advance with 17.3% of the votes, four points more than in 2019, placing second and with three seats.
