Swedish PM Survives Vote of No-Confidence
STOCKHOLM (Dispatches) - Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven easily survived a parliamentary vote of no confidence brought on Friday by the antiimmigration Sweden Democrats over a botched IT outsourcing project that may have led to the leak of sensitive information. Only 43 of the parliament’s 349 members supported the motion. Had Lofven lost, the government would have resigned, just a year before a general election. Two ministers have resigned over the potential leak of sensitive data as a result of a deal under which IBM Sweden took over some IT functions of the Swedish Transport Agency.
