An exit poll by Swedish public broadcaster SVT shows the left-leaning opposition winning the country's parliamentary election but without an absolute majority.

The SVT poll showed the Social Democratic-led bloc getting 44.8 percent of the votes, compared to 39.7 percent for the center-right alliance that's been in power for the past eight years.

A feminist party could boost the opposition bloc. The poll on Sunday showed it exactly at the 4 percent margin to enter Parliament.
