Answer

There are several resources you could try:

From the Hultquist Library print Reference Collection: Europa World Yearbook has the latest election figures and names of all government officials from the last election held.

If you don't have access to the Hultquist Library, here are some online sources:

From the Library homepage click on Databases by Subject  and select Political Science.  Choose CountryWatch from the list of databases (if you are off-campus you will need to login using your student id/password.)  From the CountryWatch homepage, select a country (ex. Sweden) from the "Quick Links" dropdown list.  On the country page, click on GOVERNMENT STRUCTURE under Political Overview (on the left side of the page.)  Scroll down to "Elections" for your answer.  Scroll to the bottom of the page for a "Print this page" link.

The CIA World Factbook (link below) is also a great source of information on countries and is available to anyone.   From the homepage select a country from the drop-down list.  On the country's page, click on the "+" next to Government, then scroll down to "Legislative Branch" for information about elections.

I hope this helps!  Contact us again if you need further information.
