The Riksdag considers that the work of the Riksdag during the COVID-19 pandemic should be followed up, and urges the Riksdag Board by way of an announcement to initiate a follow-up.

According to the Riksdag, an all-party commission of inquiry should carry out the follow-up and present its results by the autumn of 2021. The follow-up should primarily deal with measures and decisions during 2020, and should focus on three perspectives: the Riksdag as a decision-making body, the opportunities of the members of the Riksdag to perform their official duties as members, and the support and service provided by the Riksdag Administration.

The proposal concerning an announcement has come about through a committee initiative from the Committee on the Constitution. This means that the Committee has presented a proposal for a decision by the Riksdag at its own initiative.
