This article has two aims. The first objective is to examine the 2014 European Parliament (EP) election in Sweden. Though established parties lost a number of seats, the Green Party increased its seats. Two new parties (a radical right populist party and a feminist party) got seats, but other new parties that won past elections failed to gain a seat. More than half of the seats are held by women. Since all elected EP members were over thirty years old, the young generation is under-represented in the result of 2014 EP election in Sweden.
