Swedish translation:i följd / på varandra följande / i rad
Explanation:
The target term might vary depending on context, and the source term direct translation would be "konsekutiv", but is almost never used.

Usage example: "The Social Democrats in Sweden have won six consecutive elections."

Translated: "Socialdemokraterna i Sverige har vunnit sex stycken val i följd."
(a little formal)

Other: "Socialdemokraterna i Sverige har vunnit sex stycken val i rad."
(not formal, talking language) - preferred in this example

Other: "Socialdemokraterna i Sverige har vunnit sex stycken på varandra följande val."
(formal, not likely to be said, "older" style Swedish grammatics)

Direct translation: "Socialdemokraterna i Sverige har vunnit sex stycken konsekutiva val."

Also: Can also be translated entirely different, without actually using the Swedish word, like so:

Example: "The commitee decided that two consecutive elections will be held."
Translated: "Kommittén bestämde att två val ska hållas efter varandra."
