The National Democrats (Nationaldemokraterna, ND) was a national democratic and ethnopluralist political party in Sweden, formed by a radical faction of the Sweden Democrats in 12 August 2001.[5] The party disbanded in 23 April 2014.[6]

In the 2002 general election the party received 9,248 votes,[7] far below the 4 percent threshold necessary for parliamentary representation. In the 2006 general election the party received 3,064 votes (0.06%), however they had representation in two municipalities south of Stockholm.[8][9] In the 2010 general election the party received 1,141 votes (0.02%).[10] The chairman of the party was Marc Abramsson.

On 2 February 2008, the old party logo consisting of a blue and yellow sail was replaced with an orange cloudberry flower.[11]

Ideology[edit]

ND's ideology was described as xenophobic and/or racist.[12] The party rejected these descriptions.[13][14]

The party was critical of United States foreign policy and of NATO.[15][16] The party also opposed what it called the "imperialist occupations of Serbia, Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan."[16]
