Swedish voters are set to vote in a general election dominated by the rise of an anti-immigration party.

The nationalist Sweden Democrats (SD), which polls suggest have 20% support, are tipped for second place, eight years after they entered parliament.

Neither the governing Social Democrats nor the main centre-right party is likely to win a majority.

Prime Minister Stefan Löfven has accused the SD of extremism and said that a vote for it was “dangerous”.

Immigration has been a central issue of the campaign. The SD doubled its seats in the 2014 election and it is predicted to double them again in this election.

“Dark forces are mobilising in Sweden,” Mr Löfven said in his final rally on Saturday. “The hateful forces are mobilising now in Sweden and agitating people against each other.”

SD leader Jimmie Åkesson countered that Sweden had been “an extreme country in many ways, not least when it comes to immigration” and that his plan to take in fewer migrants would be regarded as “normal politics in the rest of Europe”.
