The Riksdag elected Löfven Prime Minister

Published 7 July 2021 at 15.02

A total of 173 members voted against Stefan Löfven – which is two fewer votes than required for Löfven not to get the post of Prime Minister.

In other words, the result was what was expected – and means that Löfven will once again be able to lead the country.

Liberal Nina Lundström, however, voted against her party and printed green (yes) for Löfven.

“L promised before the 2018 election not to cooperate or govern with the support of SD. It was a very important message to the voters”, she writes on DN Debatt.

The vote took place 16 days after Löfven was deposed by a motion of censure by the Riksdag.

– I can state that the Riksdag has given me the confidence to continue to lead Sweden, said Stefan Löfven at a press conference shortly after the vote.
