Sweden's MPs return from their summer recess today for the autumn session of the Swedish parliament, or Riksdag.

Prime Minister Stefan Löfven will set out his centre-left government's legislative agenda for its fourth year in office. It could be the last chance for the government to push its legislation through parliament before the country votes in next year's general election.

Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf will officially open the new parliamentary session, involving the country's 349 MPs, this afternoon. Prime Minister Löfven will then deliver his statement on his government's upcoming policies.

The first major parliamentary business, following Löfven's speech, will be the autumn budget, which will be presented by Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson next week.
