Helena Sofi Lindahl, (born 1 July 1972) is a Swedish politician of the Centre Party[1] who has been a member of the Riksdagen since 2010.

Political career[]

Since 2010, Lindahl has been a member of the Swedish Parliament, first as minister-replacement, then as a full member after Maud Olofsson had resigned as party leader and MP. She represents the Västerbottens district.[2] In parliament, she is a member of the Committee on Industry and an alternate member of the Committee on the Environment and Agriculture.

Political positions[]

In 2019, Lindahl voted against the party line and came out against Stefan Löfven’s candidacy as Prime Minister of Sweden in a vote he ultimately won; she was the only Center Party lawmaker to vote against him.[3] When the same vote came up again in 2021, she said that she would follow the party's official line, and later voted for Löfven to continue as Prime Minister.[4] She also voted in favor of approving Löfven's chosen successor, Magdalena Andersson.[5]
