The Riksdag is making the final adoption of the proposals held in abeyance on an act amending the Freedom of the Press Act (TF) and an act amending the Fundamental Law on Freedom of Expression (YGL).
The Riksdag has voted in favour of the Riksdag Board’s proposed amendments regarding the Riksdag’s work on EU matters. The amendments apply to the Riksdag Act and the Public Access to Information and Secrecy Act.
There will be tabling debates on Monday and Tuesday at which the Speaker's proposal for a new prime minister will be tabled for the first and second time. This means that the matter will be held in abeyance until the next meeting of the Riksdag. On Wednesday at 9 a.m., the Speaker's proposal for prime minister will be put to the vote in the Riksdag. This will be followed by regular debates on proposals on other subjects. The Riksdag will then take a decision on each of these proposals at 4 p.m.
On Thursday, a debate will be held in the Chamber in connection with the presentation of the caretaker government's proposed budget for next year. On Friday, the caretaker government will consult the Committee on EU Affairs prior to meetings in the Council of Ministers. On 16–19 November, the NATO Parliamentary Assembly will be holding a meeting in Canada, in which members of the Riksdag will participate.
There is a special election page containing detailed information on the elections to the Riksdag 2018, including an election calendar here.
The general private members' motions period began on 24 September. During this period, members may submit motions about virtually any subject they wish. The general private members' motions period normally finishes 15 days after the Government has submitted the Budget Bill to the Riksdag.
All debates from the Chamber are broadcast live via the Riksdag webcast service. A few of them are also interpreted into English.
Some of the functions that can be found in the English section are only available in Swedish. These include the search function and parliamentary documents.
