Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The process proceeds slowly.

The Speaker has now declared that on Monday the parliament will vote on Ulf Kristofferson as PM. It's not expected to go through, but the Speaker has said that it is time to start voting to get the process going, in effect to put pressure on the negotiations.

My gut feeling is still a Liberal, Center and Social Democratic government, with or without Greens. If I would guess, I think Center party leader Annie Lööf wants the PM seat, but I don't think the Social Democrats will let it go. That would explain stuck negotiations.
