Swedish PM calls first snap vote in 50 years after far-right force budget defeat

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden called its first snap election for more than half a century in March after a far-right party helped defeat the centre-left minority government's first budget in parliament on Wednesday. Formed after a fractured September election that handed the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats the balance of power, Prime Minister Stefan Lofven's Social Democrat-Green coalition has been widely viewed as Sweden's weakest government in decades. Shunned by mainstream parties, the Sweden Democrats have threatened to make Sweden effectively ungovernable unless the country adopts tough immigration policies like those of nearby Denmark, including a 90 percent cut in asylum seeker numbers. #Business #United States #Brazil #Middle East #Russia #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Sweden #political
