2002 Stockholm municipal election


The 2002 Stockholm municipal election was held on Sunday, 15 September 2002. The election used a party-list proportional representation system to allocate the 101-seats of the Stockholm City Council (Stockholms stadsfullmäktige) to the various Swedish political parties. This election was held concurrently with the 2002 Swedish parliamentary election. Voter turnout was 77.7%.

This election marks the first time since the election of 1976 that the Stockholm Party failed to win any seats, ending their 23-year streak of representation on the City Council.
