On Thursday 27 September, the Speaker started the assignment of preparing a proposal for a new Prime Minister for the Riksdag to take a stand on. The assignment includes interview rounds with representatives of all the parties in the Riksdag and deliberations with the Deputy Speakers. The Speaker is also keeping King Carl XVI Gustaf informed of the situation regarding the assignment of presenting a proposal for a new Prime Minister.

Ulf Kristersson (Moderate Party) and Stefan Löfven (Social Democratic Party) have each had an assignment of exploring the possibilities of forming a government that the Riksdag can tolerate. Neither of these assignments led to any concrete proposals.

The Speaker has then held further talks with party representatives.
