Members of the Riksdag will continue their parliamentary business during the summer in their home communities. Throughout the summer they have the opportunity to address written questions to Government ministers. After the election, the new Riksdag will meet on 24 September for a roll-call. The 2018/19 Riksdag session will open on 25 September. Guided tours of the Riksdag will be held over the summer in English on weekdays: Monday to Friday 12 noon and 1, 2 and 3 p.m. The Riksdag Library is closed and will open again on 3 September.
There is a special election page containing detailed information on the elections to the Riksdag 2018, including an election calendar here.
The Speaker is the Riksdag's principal representative, and as such directs and organises the Riksdag's work procedures. Urban Ahlin (Social Democratic Party) has been the Speaker of the Riksdag since 2014.
All debates from the Chamber are broadcast live via the Riksdag webcast service. A few of them are also interpreted into English.
Some of the functions that can be found in the English section are only available in Swedish. These include the search function and parliamentary documents.
