1988 Stockholm municipal election


The Stockholm municipal election of 1988 was held on 18 September 1988 concurrently with the 1988 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 81.4%.

The Swedish Centre Party returned to the Stockholm City Council this year after dismal results in 1985 deprived them of a mandate.

This election is the fourth in which the Stockholm Party succeeded in winning seats on the Stockholm City Council. It marks the high-water mark of the Stockholm Party's electoral success.
