On 25 September, a vote was held on the Prime Minister in order to determine the support for Prime Minister Stefan Löfven (Social Democratic Party) in the newly elected Riksdag. The results of the vote show that the Prime Minister does not have the confidence of the new Riksdag, as more than half of the members of the Riksdag voted against him. These are the results of the vote in the Chamber: No: 204 votes Yes: 142 votes Absent: 3 members The count was 204 votes against and 142 votes in favour of the Prime Minister. The Speaker Andreas Norlén has now dismissed Stefan Löfven from office as Prime Minister, but has at the same time assigned Stefan Löfven to lead a caretaker government. "I will now start my work of presenting a proposal for Prime Minister to the Riksdag. The first thing on my agenda will be to call the representatives of all the parties for talks", says the Speaker Andreas Norlén. On Thursday, the Speaker Andreas Norlén will initiate talks with the representatives of the party groups in the Riksdag, a process known as the Speaker's interview rounds.
