Abstract [en]

Five parties held (almost) all seats in the Swedish Riksdag between 1921 and 1988. Althoughcontenders have been around since the mid 60’s, it took until the elections of1988 and 1991 for three newcomers to make a breakthrough: Miljöpartiet (1988), Kristdemokraternaand Ny Demokrati (1991). This article examines the serious challengersthat emerged in the early 2000s, i.e. Junilistan, Piratpartiet, Sverigedemokraterna and Feministisktinitativ. How did they emerge, what issues and ideas do they represent, andwhat characterizes the voters that are attracted by them? The articles’ main focus is onthe last question. We conclude that although there are variations between the supportersof the four different parties, they share some common properties. The typical contender-voter is a young man that is uninterested in politics, has a low education and ispoorly integrated into the labour market.
