The Swedish Prime Minister has now officially called off the planned snap election originally set for March, 2015. The snap election, which came from a cabinet crisis after the September elections, would have been the first snap election in Sweden for over half a century.
The Pirate Party board says in a statement:
The last month has been both surprising and pleasing in that we’ve got to see what Pirates truly are made of. There have been a number of opinion pieces, planned activities, new campaign literature and plenty of discussions, both on Facebook, in our member forums, and AFK. And it has all been totally spontaneous – it shows us once and for all what amazing activists we have, and that the swarm is alive.
If we are to have a single New Year’s resolution as a party, it is to keep feeding this flame of activism, to keep it burning for a massive election victory in 2018.
