1979 Stockholm municipal election


The Stockholm municipal election of 1979 was held on 16 September 1979 concurrently with the 1979 Swedish parliamentary election. This election used a party-list proportional representation system to allocate the 101 seats of the Stockholm City Council (Stockholms stadsfullmäktige) amongst the various Swedish political parties. Voter turnout was 86.4%.

The Stockholm Party was founded in this year, and was allocated three seats in this election, marking the first time a party entered or exited the Stockholm City Council since the Centre Party earned their first mandate in 1966.
