Sweden votes after heated election campaign centered on immigration

Goethenburg, Sweden (CNN)Sweden’s far right is expected to make substantial gains in Sunday’s legislative elections after a heated campaign period centered on migration, with most polls showing that no single party is expected to win the vote outright.

Immigration has become a hot-button issue in Swedish politics since the mass migration of refugees to Europe in 2015, at the height of the Syrian war.
Once a nation that welcomed refugees in high numbers, anti-migration sentiment started to creep into public discourse in 2015, when Sweden took in more than 160,000 asylum seekers.
