I wish him luck.
Knowing what I know about Swedish politics, the SD would have to command a high voter turnout in their favor in order to command a majority in parliament (Riksdag), and I just don’t see that happening. Also, the rule of men, not of law, has become mainstreamed in the West, something would be conjured up by the ruling elite to thwart a SD landslide, but that’s just my gut feeling.
Sweden Democrats: ‘We will run the country’

Just a few hours after a poll-of-polls suggested that the Sweden Democrats would receive more than 18% of the vote if an election was held today, a confident Åkesson said, “We have come a long way – but we’re going even further. We’re about to show how we’re able to run the country.
“Sure, it’s a long way to the election, but it is obvious that we need to start planning to be prepared to take real responsibility for the country. We should be the establishment. We should dominate the public debate.”
Åkesson also told the audience of 2,000 people that Sweden’s welfare policies were to blame for the deaths of refugees trying to flee war and persecution in the Middle East and Africa.
“What is it that causes people to risk their own and their children’s lives to come here? I dare say that it is down to other parties’ lax policies on welfare.”
Åkesson called for a referendum on immigration “as soon as possible.”
