A LOCAL PARTY IN THE MUNICIPAL ELECTION!
Many significant political decisions are taken at the municipal
level where the local authorities have responsibility for: the quality
and extent of child care, the schools, the care of the elderly,
street cleaning, park maintenance, planning for housing and streets
and, of course, determination of the amount of municipal taxes.
That so many and such important aspects of our everyday life is
decided at municipal level is easy to forget if you listen to the
large, national political parties in their election campaigns. Make
a real stand for Stockholm in the municipal election!

Stockholmspariet was founded in 1979 as a protest movement against
the demolition of historical/cultural buildings, against increased
car traffic in the city, against the "standard solutions" of the
establishment and against the lack of local democratic involvement.
Since then Stockholmspartiet has played an important and influential
role in the political life of the city.
Stockholmspartiet is small but, in spite of this, has been successful
with its political program. Only during the last seven years we
