Swedish Lawmaker Plays 'Pokemon Go' at Opening of Parliament

STOCKHOLM (AP) — A Swedish lawmaker says she was multitasking during the opening of Parliament. She was listening to the prime minister's speech. And playing "Pokemon Go."

Monica Green also tweeted a picture of the game's Psyduck character as she was seated behind the king's son-in- law, Prince Daniel.

Green's enthusiasm for the game has prompted angry reaction as well as some admiration Tuesday. The traditionally austere ceremony was officially opened by King Carl XVI Gustaf.

Green, a member of Prime Minster Stefan Lofven's Social Democratic Party, told regional daily Skaraborgs Allehanda that she is a good multitasker and plays "Pokemon Go" occasionally.

"I can do two things at the same time," she told the newspaper. "I listened very carefully to the prime minister's speech and I think it was great."
