Still a bunch of votes to count.

... election officials don't know exactly how many advance Riksdag ballots have been cast, but there were around 100,000 in the last election in 2006.

Currently, the Alliance coalition needs 7,100 more votes to attain an overall majority of votes cast. If the centre-right would receive, say, 60,000 of around 100,000 outstanding uncounted ballots, then they would have an overall majority in the number of votes.

Looks like Alliance has picked-up another seat from the mail-in and overseas vote making them two short of an absolute majority.

The Supreme Court has no role in this. In Sweden the executive branch overrules the courts. Probably because of monarchy.

Värmland went 50.2% Left Block, 43.9% Alliance.

It is possible - though not likely - that Värmland alone will have a re-election for their 12 seats. Has not happened since the 50ies.

Hold the Election!

Now the Liberals have jumped on the bandwagon.

The Liberal Party (Folkpartiet), which lost two seats in the Riksdag by a razor thin margin, is looking to appeal the results of Sweden's 2010 elections.
