Far-right gaining support in Sweden

Far-right set for gains in Sunday's polls that the centre-right government is likely to win.

    As Sweden prepares for Sunday's parliamentary elections, opinion polls suggest that a centre-right government may win re-election for the first time since the Second World War.

    In addition, far-right candidates are likely to get their first parliamentary seats ever, a shift that may not augur well for asylum seekers.
