Career

Norlén with Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin in Helsinki, on 16 January 2023

Following the first sitting of the

Löfven I Cabinet lost a vote of no confidence, Norlén began the task of nominating candidates for Stefan Löfven's successor as Prime Minister, according to the Swedish Instrument of Government. The lengthy work of finding a prime minister that could be tolerated by the Riksdag was concluded on 18 January 2019 when Löfven was appointed for a second term. Norlén was reelected as speaker of the Riksdag on 26 September 2022.[2]

After the 2022 general elections Norlén presided over the government formations once again. This time he tasked Ulf Kristersson with forming a government.[3] The government formation that followed is one of the longest in swedish history second only to the 2018-2019 formation, which also took place under Norléns speakership.[4] On October 17 the Speaker proposed that Kristersson be appointed Prime Minister and he was approved by the Riksdag. The next day Andreas attended the formal transition of government council at Stockholm Palace chaired by king Carl XVI Gustaf.[5]
