The Pirate Party gets one seat in European Parliament

Posted on Monday, June 08 2009 @ 23:04:27 CEST by

ARS Technica reports the Swedish Pirate Party managed to grab a seat in the elections for the European Parliament yesterday, the political party received 7.1 percent of the votes.
"We have just written political history," said Swedish Pirate Party leader Rick Falkvinge. "Tonight, politicians have learned that doing what the lobby asks will cost them their jobs. We're the largest party in the segment below 30 years of age. That's building the future of liberties."

With more than 700 legislators in the European Parliament (see the complete breakdown), a vote or two won't do much to set the agenda. But for a party formed only a few years ago with a narrow set of concerns, this is an excellent showing.
