Abba-Benny supports feminist politician

The composer Benny Andersson, former member of Abba, gives one million Swedish kronor to politician Gudrun Schyman's campaign for the election to the European parliament.
This may surprise people since Andersson has never shown any support for any political ideas in public earlier, and Schyman represents the feminist party Feministiskt initiativ.
Schyman told Sveriges Televisions news program Aktuellt that Andersson wants to support technicals details in the election. Swedish news bureau TT reports that Schyman has complained that some polling stations are missing ballots for her party.
