In an email published by Politikerbloggen, Sigfrid explained his decision to his parliamentary group leader Lars Lindblad.
"Preventing the cable-based surveillance system is more important than my political future," he writes.
Describing his reason for defying the wishes of his party, Sigfrid says:
"Mass surveillance of Swedish citizens is a measure that is not proportionate to the problems Swedish authorities are expected to solve."
