List of Leaders of the Opposition (since 1930)

The table lists the people who were, or who acted as, Leaders of the Opposition since 1930.

Between 1939 and 1945, Per Albin Hansson from the Social Democrats led a national unity government consisting the Social Democrats, the National Organisation of the Right, the Farmers' League and the People's Party to keep the Socialist Party and the Swedish Communist Party outside Governmental influence during the Second World War.

Håkan Juholt resigned with immediate effect on 21 January 2012. The Social Democrats were without party leader from 21 January to 27 January 2012, during which time the second largest opposition party leaders, Gustav Fridolin and Åsa Romson from the Green Party, served as opposition leaders. This was the first time in Swedish history that the position of Leader of the Opposition was held by two persons.
