SVT reports that the Swedish government may be resigning.
Prime Minister Stefan Löfven may announce his departure at a press conference later on Wednesday, reports SVT.
The state news outlet has talked to several government sources, and one of the most likely scenarios is that the entire government resigns, reports SVT.
On Wednesday, four opposition parties announced a mistrust proposal against three of the government's ministers, Infrastructure Minister Anna Johansson, Interior Minister Anders Ygeman and Defense Minister Peter Hultqvist.
The Swedish Democrats quickly announced that it will support the proposal, while the Left Party, which will decide whether the proposal gets a majority, has taken a break to Thursday.
"This is the most serious crisis that the government of Stefan Löfven has been in since it came to power in 2014," says Björn Lindahl, Svenska Dagbladet's correspondent in Oslo.
The proposal comes in the wake of the IT scandal in the Transport Agency, where sensitive information has been in foreign hands in connection with an outsourcing of the IT service.
