A Swedish politician of Turkish origin has been expelled from his party weeks before the general and local elections in Sweden.
Mikail Yuksel has been expelled from Sweden's Centre Party ahead of elections scheduled for Sept. 9, 2018.
"I have been expelled for not speaking against Turkey and on the pretext that my father is a former [central Konya province's district of] Kulu mayor of MHP [Nationalist Movement Party]," Mikail Yuksel, parliamentary candidate, told Anadolu Agency.
"A box has been set in Konya's Kulu district for the upcoming elections in Sweden. I carried out my election campaign in Kulu because many people from Kulu are on leave," Yuksel said.
