SWEDEN is facing an electoral shock ahead of next year’s elections as a eurosceptic party that wants a referendum on the EU has rocketed up the polls.

The Sweden Democrats are projected to take as much as 23.9 per cent of the vote as appetite for the traditionalist parties wanes.

The Swedish general election will be held on or before September 9 2018 to elect the members of the national law-making assembly – the Riksdag.

But current Prime Minister Kjell Stefan Löfven and the leader of the Social Democrats is facing losses at this early stage of the polling.

A YouGov poll showed nearly a quarter of voters say they said they would vote for the Sweden Democrats if an election were held now, meaning its support is at nearly double the level during 2014 general election.

Growing worries about immigration in Sweden, which received a record 160,000 refugees in 2015, have boosted support for the hardline Sweden Democrats, echoing the rise of populist parties across Europe.

The YouGov poll gives the Sweden Democrats 23.9 per cent of support, in the lead ahead of the governing Social Democrats on 22 per cent of support.
