STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – Sweden’s Left Party said on Thursday it would seek support to bring a motion of no-confidence in Prime Minister Stefan Lofven over plans to ease rent control rules for newly built apartments.
“We are now seeking support for a vote of no-confidence,” Left Party leader Nooshi Dadgostar told reporters during a news conference.
The Left Party needs the support of at least one other party to force a vote of no-confidence.
A vote of no-confidence would require a majority in the 349-seat parliament to pass.
