The Swedish parliament passed a vote of no confidence in Prime Minister Stefan Lofven.
The vote was initiated by a small leftist ally of a minority government outside the bipartisan center-left coalition, AP reported.
Lofven said earlier that he would like to wait for the results of the vote of no confidence, and then think about what is best for Sweden. He said he has two options: to announce early elections or to become the head of the interim government.
He has a week to decide what to do.
