Left Party alone in resignation call
The opposition Left Party is alone in calling for the trade minister, Ewa Björling, to resign over her role in the Saudi weapons deals, uncovered by Swedish Radio.
Urban Ahlin, of the main opposition party the Social Democrats, says they will await the judgment of the parliamentary committee on constitutional affairs, which is set to look into the business dealings with Saudi Arabia.
"We don't rule out that we will ask Björling, and maybe other ministers, to resign in the future," Ahlin says.
The Green Party and the Sweden Democrats have also signalled that they will not support the Left Party in its bid to have Björling resign over the affair, which its leader Jonas Sjöstedt says she handled "poorly."
