Biography

Fridolin was born in Vittsjö, Hässleholm Municipality, Skåne County, Sweden. He joined the Green Party in 1994 and served as one of two spokespersons of the Young Greens of Sweden between 1999 and 2003.

 

Fridolin first served as a member of the Swedish parliament between 2002 and 2006, representing the Stockholm Municipality constituency. Aged nineteen at the time, he was one of the youngest MPs ever to have been elected in the world and the youngest in Swedish history until 2010, being bested by Moderate Anton Abele. During his first term in parliament he served as a member of the Committee on the Constitution.

 

Fridolin also served as a member of the board of the Green Party between 2004 and 2006, and was one of his party's representatives in the negotiations with the Social Democratic government and the Left Party.

 

In 2005 Fridolin announced that he would not be up for re-election as an MP in the 2006 election. Between 2006 and 2009 he worked as a reporter at the investigative television program Kalla fakta on TV4. He also worked as a teacher in history and social studies at a folk high school in Stockholm. He holds a candidate degree from the Department of Oriental Languages at Stockholm University and a degree as a folk high school teacher from Linköping University.

 

Fridolin again ran as a candidate for parliament in the 2010 election and was elected, representing the Skåne County North and East constituency. He is a member of the Committee on European Union Affairs in the parliament and a deputy member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, the Committee on Civil Affairs and the Committee on Industry and Trade.

 

Fridolin has written three books, all on politics. The first, titled Från Vittsjö till världen - om global apartheid och alla vi som vill någon annanstans (From Vittsjö to the world - about global apartheid and everyone of us that want to go somewhere), was released in 2006. His second book, titled Blåsta, was released in 2009, and his third book, Maskiner och människor - en skrift om arbete och framtidstro (Machines and men - writings on labour and belief in the future) was released in 2011. Machines and men was cowritten with Ulf Bodach Söderström and lays out a possible policy for an environmentally friendly industry.

 

Gustav Fridolin is since 2007 married to Jennie Fridolin. His political idols, aside from proponents of Green politics, include Liberal Prime Minister Karl Staaff of the early 20th century which he praised in a January 2011 article, espousing centrist and social liberal views.
