The Swedish parliament voted for a vote of no confidence in Prime Minister Stefan Loewen, four political forces voted against the prime minister.
This is reported by the TV and radio company SVT.
181 deputies voted for no confidence in Leven, 109 were against. 51 deputies abstained.
Thus, Stefan Loewen became the first sitting Prime minister to receive a vote of no confidence.
Later, he will give a press conference about his future actions.
Recall that the initiative of a vote of no confidence was separately made by the “Left Party “and the far-right” Sweden Democrats”. The main reason was the government’s intention to allow landlords to freely set the rent for apartments in new buildings.
No confidence can mean either the announcement of early elections or only the resignation of the prime minister.
The minority government of Leuven-the Social Democrats and the Greens-came to power in 2019, after months of negotiations following the 2018 elections. The agreement between the political forces provided for a number of liberal market reforms.
