Party Financing

Unlike most other European countries, Sweden has not had legislation on mandatory accounting of the incomes, expenses, capital and debts of political parties. Since 1980, the Swedish riksdags parties have centrally agreed upon a public accounting of incomes, the latest one starting 2000.

On the 1th of April 2014, a new law came into force (2014:105) on transparency on party financing, which means that parties and individual candidates that run for riksdagen or the European Parliament have to submit an annual account of their incomes to Kammarkollegiet, which is then published on kollegiets website.

The party research program has collected the parties income analyses between 2010-2013. The riksdag parties' income analyses only include the national party organisations. They are available in the document below:

International regulation of party financing

The International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA) has created an international compilation of party financing with comparative information on the legislation that applies to party financing in 180 countries.

The database is available here:

Political Finance Database

Another compilation, which also includes information on the implementation has been created by the project Money, Politics and Transparency (MPT). The database includes 54 countries and is available here:
