Elections were held in Sweden on 11 September. The final election results have now been established and the distribution of the 349 seats in the Riksdag between the eight parties that received at least four per cent of the votes in the 2022 parliamentary election is completed.

There are 349 seats in the Riksdag to be distributed among the parties. The number of seats each party receives should be in proportion to the number of votes the party has received in the parliamentary elections. The main rule is that a particular party must receive at least four per cent of the votes in order to enter the Riksdag.
