Sweden receives a failing overall score of 34.5 percent for electoral fairness

On July 26th, a six-person FDA audit team audited electoral fairness in Sweden. After a two hour session, the audit team gave Sweden a failing score of 34.5 percent. Although Sweden is very progressive in the proportional aspects of its electoral system and has fair and progressive distribution of state electoral subsidies, these elements of fairness and others are offset by extreme unfairness in Sweden's laws and regulations on the media's political content and electoral finance.

On July 29th, the FDA will release its audit report on Sweden.
