Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Löfven calls the motion of no-confidence against his government irresponsible.
“We are still in the middle of a pandemic,” Löfven said at a press conference on Thursday afternoon.
The confidence vote will take place in the Swedish parliament (Riksdag) on Monday. Löfven didn’t want to reveal what he will do if his government falls.
He has two choices and must decide within a week: announce new elections or resign.
Majority in support of a no-confidence vote
The no-confidence motion in connection with a dispute over rent regulation has the support of the Moderates, the Sweden Democrats, the Left Party, and the Christian Democrats. Together, the parties have a majority in the Riksdag.
The Prime Minister is particularly critical of the fact that the Left Party is willing to support the motion.
“It is completely incomprehensible,” he stated.
