Swedish Parliament Rejects Proposed Government again

Friday, 14 December 2018 04:38 AM

STOCKHOLM (AP) — Swedish lawmakers have rejected proposals for caretaker Prime Minister Stefan Lofven form a center-right government, more than three months after elections that left the country in political limbo.

Parliament voted 200-116 to reject a minority coalition of Lofven's Social Democrats — Sweden's largest party — and the left-leaning Greens.

Friday's vote was the second of a possible four before Speaker Andreas Norlen must call new elections.

All attempts at forming a government have been without the populist, nationalist Sweden Democrats. Neither the center-left and the center-right blocs in the 349-seat Riksdagen will cooperate with the party that made great strides in the Sept. 9 election.
