The Pirate Party of Sweden uses Schulze for their primaries. They don't 
promote Schulze, though. Since Sweden is parliamentary, there are no 
single-winner elections and so Schulze doesn't apply.

Ideally, the Pirate Party would use Schulze STV internally and also 
promote it for election reform. But that's cherry on the top. I'm not 
going to be annoyed at their use of Schulze simply because they could 
have picked SSTV instead. I just hope their use of ordinary Schulze for 
composing the party list won't lead to too many centrists on the list 
and thus opposition and replacement with some worse but more 
proportional method.
