Left Party 5.8% (-2.5%) 22 (-8)
Social Democrats 35.2% (-4.8%) 130 (-14)
Greens 5.2% (+0.6%) 19 (+2)

Total left bloc 46.2% (-6.7%)  171 (-20)

Centre Party 7.9% (+1.7%) 29 (+7)
Liberal Party 7.5% (-5.9%) 28 (-20)

Total bourgeois bloc 48.1% (+4.2%) 178 (+20)

Others 5.7% (+2.6%) 0 (-)

This gives the right-wing Alliance a majority of seven in the Riksdag, which is small but workable given the high level of voting discipline in Swedish parliamentary parties.

Commiserations to our Swedish comrades.
