Parliament topples Swedish government in historic no-confidence vote

Parliament topples Swedish government in historic no-confidence vote

Sweden’s parliament has passed a vote of no confidence in PM Lofven. A total of 181 of the 349 MPs voted in favor of the motion. It is the first time in Swedish history that a PM has been ousted in such a vote. Lofven has a week to resign or call a snap election. This comes as Sweden’s Left party called for the no-confidence vote amid a row over proposals to end a rent cap on new-build flats.

As a swede this makes me very happy, mr Loven has been in power for 8 years. It was about time for change!

I wish all countries gave the option to depose their leaders this way. It could really cut down on corruption and institutional mismanagement.

The most interesting part in this story is that the party furthest to the left demanded the vote, and they were supported in the vote by the right wing parties to gain a majority. I just hope we can come out from this with a strong conservative government.

The social Democrats got thrown out because they wanted to ease controls on rent? The most left party in the country saw that people don’t build apartments they can’t make money on so they let them set the price, and they got thrown out? The left eased government restrictions, did I read that right? Someone from Sweden please explain this.

Note to self...Make sure you put on your glasses before opening NewsVoice app. I read this as 'Permanent Topless Swedish Government'

I wish that was an option here in the U.S.. It would have been implemented numerous times, Especially between 2017, 2018, 2019, and even most of 2020 before the election.

Does the dissatisfaction have anything to do with Sweden completely ignoring COVID last year, which resulted in off-the-charts numbers of cases and deaths? Wouldn't conservatives just continue (or expand) such an ignorant approach to handling this and other problems backed by science and facts, since the right likes to ignore or dispute the reality that they don't like?

Atleast now the people should use this chance to vote in a conservative government.

This is kind of ridiculous... All they needed was 51% of the vote? I forsee a day when this is used more often if that's all they need

Sweden has almost been utterly destroyed by uber leftist policies. It's on the verge of becoming a middle east country.
