Sweden European Parliament election, 2009
Sweden
2004 ←
7 June 2009 → 2014
18 seats to the European Parliament (20 seats from december 2011)

The European Parliament election of 2009 in Sweden was held on 7 June 2009 and determined the makeup of the Swedish delegation to the European Parliament. The election was held using a modified form of the Sainte-Laguë method of party-list proportional representation using the entire country as a single electoral constituency. There is a threshold limit of 4 percent for Swedish elections to the European Parliament, so that any party not receiving at least four percent of the votes will not be allocated any seats.[1]

Sweden will be allocated 18 seats in the European parliament for this term, a reduction from the 19 they were allocated in the 2004 election. From December 2011 Sweden has 20 seats.[2]

The new Pirate Party polled at 7.1%, giving it one seat, and from December 2011 two seats after the Treaty of Lisbon.[2] The eurosceptic June List saw the biggest slump in support, falling nearly 11% and losing all 3 seats.

Turnout increased compared to the last election, from 37,9% to 45,5%.

Results[edit]

The final results were published by the Swedish Election Authority on 11 June 2009.[3] From December 2011, Pirateparty and Swedish Social Democratic Party have one more seats after Treaty of Lisbon.[4]
