Gustav Kasselstrand, the former chair of the Sweden Democratic Youth organization, has formed a new political party called “Alternative for Sweden” (AfS). The formation of the party is in time for Sweden’s general elections that will take place on September 9, Expressen reports.
According to Swedish news outlet FriaTider, Kasselstrand called his new movement for Sweden’s first ‘remigration’ party and added that they want an “immediate stop” of asylum seekers followed by an active returning of immigrants to where they came from.
Kasselstrand said that immigrants who have committed crimes, cheated the system or do not contribute to the Swedish society have “no place” here and noted that they “should not be integrated — they should go back to their home countries.”
A few weeks ago, Jonathan Leman, a researcher at Expo, a left-wing organization that reportedly has been funded by the controversial George Soros, called the AfS for a “more radical” version of the Sweden Democrats.
Swedish Democrats, on the other hand, is stepping back fully from AfS and had its press secretary has compared it to the so-called Nordic Resistance Movement, a Pan-Nordic Neo-Nazi movement.
“I am glad if this leads to that we avoid people with racist opinions and deplorable behavior in our party,” Sweden Democrats press secretary Henrik Vinge said.
