China News Service, August 22. According to Agence France-Presse, on the 22nd local time, Swedish Prime Minister Levin stated that he will resign as Prime Minister in November to allow time for his successor to prepare for the country’s September 2022 General election.
According to reports, Levin stated at a political rally that he would “resign from the post of party chairman at the party congress in November and then resign as the prime minister”.
In 2014, Levine was elected Prime Minister of Sweden.
After four years in power, the parliament voted no confidence in him, and Levin faced the risk of stepping down.
However, the new prime minister proposed by the speaker was rejected by the parliament.
On January 18, 2019, the Swedish Parliament voted to decide that Levin will continue to serve as Prime Minister for a term of 4 years.
On June 21, 2021, Levin was removed in a vote of no confidence in the parliament, becoming the country's first prime minister to be removed by a vote of no confidence during his term of office.
According to the procedure, Levin faces two choices after being removed: dissolve the current government and nominate a new prime minister by the speaker; or announce that parliamentary elections will be held within three months.
Levine subsequently announced his resignation.
According to the procedure, the Speaker of the Parliament held a series of talks with the leaders of Swedish political parties, and finally re-nominated Levin as the prime minister's candidate.
On July 7, the Swedish parliament voted on Levin, who was nominated as prime minister, and less than half of the votes were voted against. Levin re-elected as prime minister.Keywords:
