Swedish centre-right leader calls on PM Lofven to step down

Swedish centre-right opposition leader Ulf Kristersson called on Social Democrat Prime Minister Stefan Lofven to step down after preliminary election results showed his opposition Alliance coalition in a virtual dead heat with its centre-left rivals.”This government has run its course,” Kristersson told a party rally, referring to Lofven’s minority cabinet. “Now it should resign.”Kristersson is leader of the Moderates and the four-party centre-right Alliance’s candidate for prime minister. Sunday’s election, as expected, showed gains by the unaligned anti-immigration Sweden Democrats, leaving both the centre-right and ruling centre-left party blocs well shy of a majority.
