Political career[]

Reslow was elected to parliament for the Moderate Party during the 2010 Swedish general election and subsequently served on the Justice Committee in the Riksdag. In 2017, Reslow announced he was joining the Sweden Democrats, citing concerns over immigration and personal opposition to the December Agreement the Moderates had made to prevent the Sweden Democrats from voting down the budget set by the Swedish Social Democratic Party as his reasons for doing so. He was re-elected to the Riksdag at the 2018 Swedish general election representing the Sweden Democrats.[1][2][3]
