Second Deputy Speaker (15’)

Swedish title Punkt 9: val av andre vice talman
German title Der zweite stellvertretende Parlamentspräsident

In the Swedish general elections of 2014, the Sweden Democrats (far-right) became the Riksdag’s third largest party.

By tradition - and through a formal vote - the chamber honors the largest parties by awarding them the Speaker and three Deputy Speaker posts.

Filmed in the Swedish parliament, SECOND DEPUTY SPEAKER gives a critical study of politics and symbols of resistance in parliamentary procedures.
