swedish constitution

Changes in the Way Sweden is Run

Published onsdag 17 december 2008 kl 15.57
A debate in Sweden's parliament

A new constitution has been proposed - but don’t look for revolutionary changes here.

After four years the state’s constitutional committee has proposed changes to the Swedish constitution.

It’ll be slightly easier to get elected to parliament on the basis of personal votes.

Local authorities will be able to choose whether to bring in a congestion charge.

And local referendums will be harder to call - but also harder for the local council to veto.

Any changes in Sweden’s constitution must be voted through the parliament twice - with a general election in between.

The soonest the new constitution can take effect is 2011.
