A Swedish Republic

The policy statement of the Swedish Republican Association

Introduction

The Swedish constitution was democratized during the last century, and the Instrument of Government from 1974, which is one of Sweden's four fundamental laws and deals with the way in which Sweden is to be governed, is still one of the most modern constitutions in the world. Its first paragraph establishes that all public power in Sweden proceeds from the people and that Swedish democracy is founded on the free formation of opinion and on universal and equal suffrage. This shall be realized through a representative and parliamentary polity and through local self-government. The public power is exercised under the law. There is a solid popular support for the democratic institutions in Sweden.

Nevertheless, one serious restriction of the Swedish democracy still remains, a historical remainder unacceptable to any modern democratic society - the monarchy.

What does the Swedish Republican Association want?

The Swedish Republican Association wants to see a democratic form of government in Sweden. It shall be done according to democratic principals and in coherence with the regulations of the Swedish constitution. The republic form of government shall be democratic and independent from political and religious ideologies.

Reasons for establishing a republic form of government

We have a political democracy in Sweden. This means that there is no other source for public power but the people itself. All state functions answers to democratic legislations. No public office can be inherited or reserved for a person belonging to a certain social class. Except for one office - the head of state.
