Jimmie Åkesson is the only party leader who has not appeared on Almedalen's stage this year. Instead, he was replaced by the Sweden Democrats' group leader Linda Lindberg. Her Almedal speech was basically only about domestic politics, and migration policy was at the center. She also touched on the judiciary, care and equality.
