2:09 min
  • The government re-submitted its Spring Budget to parliament on Friday, this time including an compromise proposal it reached with several parties that would boost pensions.

  • The ruling Social Democrats had reached the last-minute deal, this time including the Center Party, which would bring it closer to a majority in parliament.

  • The opposition shot it down, however, which meant there was no majority in parliament for any budget proposal earlier this week.
