"the re-election on Sunday could change the whole balance of power in the Falun city council."
"the Decision to hold the election shocked many when it came in February. Not least the voters and local politicians whose parties is now at risk of losing power."
"– the Air went first out of a and I thought, no, it may not be so. But it was just to grab the thing and now it is in the tile a second time, " says Vanja Ottewall (M), which sits in the Falun city council after septembervalet."
"the re-election in Falun on Sunday when a postsäck with the votes was delayed, handled wrong, and then not allowed to be counted."
"Had been able to give a different balance."
"The missing votes did not affect the parliamentary elections or regionvalet. But the 126 calculation excluding the votes in the municipal elections had, in theory, been able to provide a different political balance of the city council, then it was very narrow margin gave a mandate to the Conservatives instead of to the Left."
"In september, the voting turnout was 87 per cent in Falun. In the re-election on Sunday is expected a much lower turnout."
"– we end up 20 percentage points lower (67 per cent) I would be very happy. We end up over there, it is just a bonus, " says valsamordnaren and kommunjuristen Ellen Gräfnings."
"– It is to be hoped that it is high enough for not people to feel that it will be an unfair choice, " she adds."
"Camilla Sparring (C), who faced re-election is chairman of the Falun omvårdnadsnämnd, thought that the news was tough after all the hard work in the regular election, and so close to the EUROPEAN elections, to be held in seven weeks."
"the Counting of votes should have gone to solve despite the incorrect handling, maybe it had gone with the help of foreign tellers, according to Sparring."
"– this is of course a jätteapparat, " she says, and recalls that it is not just Falun gong that it is possible to vote in all Swedish municipalities and the Swedish embassies around the world."
"She adds that she, too, respects the decision."
"– It is, after all, a democratic decision has been taken, so it is just to bite the bullet and roll up your sleeves. It becomes that, it becomes, as we say here in the Valleys of, say, Sparring."
"Hope to make up with the C"
"Of Falun commissioner for the opposition Jonas Lennerthson (S) was the decision on re-election at the same time very welcome. He now hopes a new seats which allows that he can poke moderaten Mats Dahlberg from the post of mayor."
"– this is the second chance for us, so it is, " he says."
"According to Lennerthson it had probably been enough of a mandate to the red-green rather than to the ruling coalition parties had agreed to stop the current minority rule in Falun."
"– Then the C probably been more interested in stitching together a deal with the us, I think, " he says."
"the re-election held just seven weeks before the EUROPEAN elections and some regard it as a first test of how the electorate looks at the turbulent formation of the government and januariavtalet on the national level, which led to a rödgrön the Swedish government with support from the Centre party and the Liberals."
"Locally in Falun, sweden gave the results of the election in september, but the annulled votes, exactly the opposite effect. In the previous mandate coalition between the C, MP, and S has since last fall been replaced by what is called the Falualliansen. In it sits the four ruling coalition parties had agreed together with the Falupartiet, which controls the municipality, with the help of what can be seen as an unholy alliance with the Left party – which in a valtekniskt cooperation supports Falualliansen in against certain items in the committees and boards."
