STOCKHOLM, Sweden — The Swedish government announced its talks will continue following the rejection on of Stefan Löfven as Prime Minister.
The Speaker’s second proposal for a new prime minister was put to the vote in the Chamber on December 14.
Stefan Löfven is now leading a caretaker government. A caretaker government remains in office until a new government has taken office. A new government formally takes office at a Council of State at the Royal Palace.
In principle, a caretaker government has the same powers as an ordinary government with the exception that it may not call an extraordinary election. As a rule, a caretaker government takes decisions on day-to-day issues, but does not take any political initiatives.
These are the results of the vote in the Chamber:
