Election Day

Election Day

It's election day in Sweden today. I met these volunteers in Västerhaninge. They were handing out ballot paper to voters. As I took the photo the Mayor came by and commented on the fact that there were mostly women here. The smiling man in the middle representing the Liberal Party had a look at the photo and said that he looked very slim on the picture! The people you see here represents the following parties:Moderaterna. Miljöpartiet. Folkpartiet. Socialdemokraterna. F! and Rättvisepartiet Socialisterna.

Lots of parties, just like here. Lots of enthusiasm in those faces too.

They appear to all be getting along quite nicely.

If all political parties were well-behaved liked these, we would all be better off.

I hope your result will be quicker than ours was recently. It took three weeks before it was decided who would be running Australia, by 1 member.

There was a few parties missing from this line up. We had a very interesting result. And it will take a few weeks to sort it out. But the centre/right coalition will stay in power, although they didn't get a majority so they will have to work something out with the green party.

Nice to see them all side by side and not yelling at each other like they do here. That is a lot of parties.
