Oxelösund Municipality (Oxelösunds kommun) is a municipality in Södermanland County in southeast Sweden. Its seat is located in the city of Oxelösund.

In 1950 the Nikolai Rural municipality was dissolved. One part formed the then City of Oxelösund, one of the last newly created cities of Sweden. The rest of Nikolai was incorporated into the neighbouring City of Nyköping. In 1971 the city became a unitary municipality without addition of territory, and it is with its 35.75 square kilometres (13.80 sq mi) one of Sweden's smallest municipalities.

Geography[edit]

It covers a peninsula in the Baltic Sea, and borders by land only to Nyköping Municipality.

Still marked by its industrial past, the politics is dominated by the Social Democratic Party, and the industry by the harbour and iron works.

International relations[edit]

Twin towns - Sister cities[edit]

Oxelösund is a member of the Douzelage, a unique town twinning association of 24 towns across the European Union. This active town twinning began in 1991 and there are regular events, such as a produce market from each of the other countries and festivals.[3][4] Discussions regarding membership are also in hand with three further towns (Agros in Cyprus, Škofja Loka in Slovenia, and Tryavna in Bulgaria).

Elections since the 1972 municipal reform[edit]

Riksdag[edit]

No boundary changes. The Sweden Democrats' numbers were not listed by the SCB agency from 1988 to 1998 due to the party being out of contention for Riksdag entry.

Blocs

This lists the relative strength of the socialist and centre-right blocks since 1973, but parties not elected to the Riksdag are inserted as "other", including the Sweden Democrats results from 1988 to 2006, but also the Christian Democrats pre-1991 and the Greens in 1982, 1985 and 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.
