Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What has changed is months of party leaders - more notably on the right - saying that "let the bigger bloc rule" is so 2014. (Except the Left party.)

The Alliance party leaders called yesterday for Löfven to resign. Which he won't do unless he has to, as the incumbent has an advantage: a Swedish PM can rule on as long as a majority doesn't vote against him or her. The Soc-Dems and the Greens has opened for a government in the middle, with the Center and Liberals. That would break the blocs, which hasn't happened for real since world war two.

So no particular scenario is likely, which means all are on their own unlikely. But something will happen.

Oh, and if the Wednesday votes flips a seat so the blocs are exactly equal then that ads to the mix.
