The group leaders of the parties represented in the Riksdag have agreed to change work procedures so that just 55 members of the Riksdag will participate in votes in the Chamber.
 
All of the parties represented in the Riksdag have agreed to implement changes in the Riksag’s work procedures in response to the coronavirus.
 
As a result, just 55 members will participate in decisions in the Chamber. All members of the Riksdag continue to be in service, just in somewhat different forms from usual. The agreement applies between 16 and 13 April. During this period, the pairing system will not be applied; instead the parties will all be responsible for ensuring that they have voting members present in the Chamber.

Guided tours, events and meetings in the Riksdag cancelled until further notice
