An exit poll projects that Sweden’s ruling left-wing Social Democrats has won the most votes in a general election today, while a right-wing populist party had its best showing yet.
The exit poll published by Swedish public broadcaster SVT has a margin of error, and the final outcome will only be known once votes are counted.
There are eight parties running to win seats in the 349-seat parliament, or Riksdag. They belong to one of two major blocs, one with four left-wing parties and another with four conservative parties. The exit poll projected that the left had a slight edge over the right, with 176 seats to 173.
