Stockholm : Two days before Swedes head to the polls, the country's most famous climate activist, Greta Thunberg, on Friday deplored the lack of debate on the climate.

''The climate crisis has been more or less ignored in this election campaign. At best it's been reduced to an issue about energy. So we have a lot to do,'' she told AFP.

Sporting a striped t-shirt, the young activist took part in a protest with several hundred others in central  Stockholm on Friday.

Sweden's legislative elections on Sunday, where 349 seats in parliament are up for grabs, are expected to be a nail-biter, with the left - and right wing blocks polling dead even.

'' I am protesting because only voting is not enough ,'' Thunberg said, criticising politicians for not doing enough on the climate.

''Right now none of the political parties are delivering,'' she added.

The 19-year-old activist, who is eligible to vote in her first election this year, has said she had not yet made up her mind which party to vote for. [AFP]
