    On December 3, 2014 Prime Minister of Sweden Stefan Loefven called for snap elections in March 2015 after losing budget vote in the Riksdag, the Parliament of Sweden. The snap election will be Sweden's first since 1958 and is highly unusual for what is often considered one of Europe's most stable democracies. The elections will be held on 22 March 2015. A snap election is an election called earlier than expected. Generally it refers to an election in a parliamentary system called when not required, usually to capitalize on a unique electoral opportunity or to decide a pressing issue.
