At least it is clear what will be voted on. Kristofferson has presented a Moderates and Christian Democrats government. Liberals and Center has declared that they will vote it down. There is mutual recriminations about who split the Alliance. So this far the split in the Alliance is playing out and both sides are trying to avoid the blame by placing it on the other side.
The party leader of the Left party - which will not be included in the government if the liberal parties join - has commented that the Alliance is over, and the liberal parties needs to negotiate with the Social Democrats, but that the Left party supports the Social Democrats party leader as prime minister. That supports that it is indeed the PM position that is the problem.
Interestingly, after the vote, the Greens said that Lööf should be given the opportunity to try to form a government. I think the Social Democrats will have a hard time accepting that, they are still in the mindset that they in principle should be able to govern alone, and they are larger than the other possible coalition parties put together.
