The far-right Sweden Democrats (SD) on Friday said their leader Jimmie Akesson has received a letter with a death threat as the party is on course to win record support in Sunday’s legislative election.

‘We hope that this threat is not real,’ party spokesman Oskar Cavalli-Bjorkman told AFP, adding they’re awaiting the Swedish security and intelligence service Sapo’s assessment.

A copy of the threat letter, with the Islamic State group’s flag at the top, was published by Swedish media.

The chilling letter contains threats both against Akesson and his four-year-old son and calls for the controversial politician to ‘Immediately resign from the election’.

‘We will behead you if you do not withdraw from the election by the end of this week,’ the letter reads, adding a similar threat against Akesson’s son.

Sapo confirmed that it has launched an investigation into the incident.

The Sweden Democrats (SD), a far-right populist party thriving on voter discontent, has vowed to ‘make Sweden great again’ as the country prepares to go to the polls on Sunday.

The slogan, appropriated by Sweden Democrats town councillor Mats Seijboldt from the now United States President, urges voters to throw their support behind a party that is tipped to win about 20 per cent of votes nationwide.

The Sweden Democrats could become the second largest group in parliament behind Prime Minister Stefan Lofven’s centre-left Social Democrats.
