Gnesta Municipality (Gnesta kommun) is a municipality in Södermanland County in southeast Sweden. Its seat is located in the town of Gnesta, with some 5,000 inhabitants.

The present municipality was created in 1992, when Nyköping Municipality (of which it had been a part since 1974) was split up.

It is in the middle of the cultural Södermanland province. Although it only has around 10,000 permanent inhabitants, the population increases substantially in the summer due to the many summer houses.

Industry-wise, Gnesta mostly has small companies with few employed. There are about 800 registered companies in the municipality, and a "large" company would have 25-50 employees.

Blocs

This lists the relative strength of the socialist and centre-right blocs since 1991, but parties not elected to the Riksdag are inserted as "other", including the Sweden Democrats results from 1988 to 2006 but also the Greens in 1991. The sources are identical to the table above. The coalition or government mandate marked in bold formed the government after the election. New Democracy got elected in 1991 but are still listed as "other" due to the short lifespan of the party. "Elected" is the total number of percentage points from the municipality that went to parties who were elected to the Riksdag.
