Do you want a say in who should make decisions in the European Parliament for the next five years? Do you believe that the environment, democracy, human rights, Europe’s future or the economy are important issues?

On Sunday, May 26, Sweden goes to the polls to elect its European Parliament representatives. The European Parliament decides many important questions that affect your life in Botkyrka. Many of the laws that apply in Sweden originate in the EU. At the polls, citizens across the various EU Member States get to decide who will represent them in the European Parliament for the next five years.
