Pirate Party Lost Swedish Election

The Pirate Party of Sweden has failed to repeat the success of the last year’s European election. The political party, which has offered to help The Pirate Bay and Wikileaks by hosting them from within the Parliament, lost the former support and is not able to reach the threshold necessary to enter Parliament.

The Swedish Pirate Party enjoyed its 2009 breakthrough, when it secured 2 seats in the European Parliament after getting over 7% of the vote. Last weekend the Swedes were voting for their national Parliament, and if the Party replicated the success of last year, it could secure over dozen seats, because the threshold for entering the Parliament in the country is 4%. Unfortunately, the Party failed.

After 95% of the votes were counted, it became clear that the Swedish Pirate Party won’t be able to enter the Parliament. At the moment the Party has got around 1% of the total vote, so that’s clear it won’t reach the threshold of 4% it needs.

Consequently, both The Pirate Bay and Wikileaks lose their chance to be hosted under the Swedish Parliamentary immunity. Besides, the Pirate Party loses its opportunity to criminalize “copyright abuse” or legalize its plans of non-commercial file-sharing. Although the members of party are very disappointed with the results, they admit that they gave it all they got – more articles, more media, more handed-out flyers and more debates, so it should have been their best campaign ever. But the wind was blowing to the other direction, unlike the case with the European elections.

The head of the Pirate Party, Falkvinge, said that the main reason for the lack of votes was the public’s disregard to the debates of all the issues the Pirate Party is up for. It had to be in minority, because the other political parties preferred to put a collective blanket over the culture, privacy and knowledge questions, because they just had nothing at all to gain.

The results of the elections and Pirate Party failure are still difficult to predict. The party guesses that the best example will be how the trial of The Pirate Bay will start just a week after the election.

The members of the Party will have to wait for another 4 years to make one more attempt to conquer the Swedish Parliament. Today they have to settle for 2 seats in European Parliament, but they don’t hang down their heads – they know that each generation has to reconquer democracy and that’s not very easy to do.
