Who is Anton Abele?

Anton Amadé Abele is an Swedish activist, debater and politician. He is a Member of Parliament for Stockholm County, replacing incumbent Minister for Culture and Sports Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth, since the 2010 general election. At the age of 18, he is the youngest person ever to become a Member of Parliament in Sweden.

He entered the political scene as an anti-violence activist following the death of 16-year-old Riccardo Campogiani, who was beaten to death at a party in the centre of Stockholm in October 2007.

On July 25, 2013 Abele announced that he will finish his term in the Swedish Parliament, then end his political career and not run for re-election in the 2014 general election, citing disillusionment with the working climate in the Parliament.
