- The risk day is now gathered to vote on the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, which decides the Swedish government’s future.
- The background is that the left-wing leader Nooshi Dadgostar has stated that she lacks confidence in Stefan Löfven due to the government’s investigation proposal to introduce free renting on newly produced tenancies.
- Ekot broadcasts directly from the vote with subsequent analysis from policy commentator Fredrik Furtenbach and policy reporter Katarina Helmersson.
Before the actual vote, several of the members of the Riksdag requested the floor to speak. According to the plan, the vote will be held at 10.30.
The Liberals’ Johan Persson announces that his party will not vote to oust Stefan Löfven’s government, but that the Liberals will vote yellow in today’s vote.
The Center Party will also vote yellow, ie abstain in today’s vote, according to party leader Annie Lööf. As long as the Social Democrats continue to live up to the January agreement, the Center Party will want to remove Löfven, Lööf believes.
The Christian Democrats’ party leader Ebba Busch places the responsibility for the situation that has arisen on the Social Democrats and with that she announces that the KD will today vote to remove the government.
The Sweden Democrats’ Jimmie Åkesson also says that they will vote to remove the government. A government he believes he has no confidence in.
– This government should never have taken office, says the Moderates’ party leader Ulf Kristersson, and announces that his party will also vote to remove Stefan Löfven.
