Sweden to turn left after poll

Joseph Millis
A COALITION of three opposition centre-left parties appeared to be on course to form the largest bloc in Sweden’s parliament after yesterday’s general election.

However, although the bloc overtook the governing centre-right coalition, it fell short of an absolute majority.

The opposition of Social Democrats, Greens and Left Party would win 160 seats in the 349-seat parliament, but a coalition need175 seats to form a majority government.
