1991 Swedish general election
All 349 seats to the Riksdag
175 seats were needed for a majority
The four parties of the centre-right coalition (the Centre Party, Liberal People's Party, Moderate Party, and Christian Democratic Society Party) were allocated a combined total of 171 seats, 17 more than the two left-wing parties' 154, but still less than the 175 necessary for a majority. Thus the centre-right bloc was dependent upon New Democracy to secure a parliamentary majority.
This election was also famous for the performance of the Donald Duck Party, which collected 1,535 votes, enough to make it the 9th largest in Sweden. The protest party's platform consisted of the demand for "free liquor and wider sidewalks."
