Now, turning to Sweden....
 
Preliminary results of the 2018 Swedish parliamentary elections show that the Centre-Left bloc is narrowly leading the race.
 
Consisting of the Social Democratic Party, the Green Party and the Left party, the Centre-Left bloc have gained 40.7 percent of the vote, narrowly leading the race.
   
While the opposing Center-Right alliance bloc of the Moderate Party, the Centre Party, the Liberal Party and the Christian Democrats currently have 40.3 percent of the vote.
   
This gives the centre-left 144 seats in the 349-seat parliament against 142 for the Alliance, suggesting weeks of uncertainty before a workable government can be formed.
 
Shunned by all the other parties since entering parliament in 2010, the Sweden Democrats have promised to sink any Cabinet that refuses to give them a say in policy, particularly on immigration.
