Sunday was national, regional and local elections in Sweden. The preliminary results from the Swedish national election are public now with the rest still being counted. The Swedish Pirate Party did not manage to achieve their goal of more than 1% in the national election and to enter local parliaments throughout the country.
“Pirates are a fantastic breed”, says party leader Anna Troberg in a statement. “We’ve never let a challenge stop us before, and we won’t do it now either. We’re needed now more than ever. Yesterday was a disappointment in many ways, but now we’ll continue working together to achieve the world we want in the future.”
