Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The debate is going on now, and the vote is scheduled for 4 pm.

With negotiations already failed, a quick resolution is of the table in case the budget is voted down. But still new elections feel far-fetched, we almost never have new elections (local new elections have been held when there has been voting irregularities that were enough to possibly change the result). Dusty tomes has to be taken out even to find when we are supposed to hold them.

With that in mind, new elections might mean lower participation rate, participation has been lower in local new elections. Then again, the results has tended to be about the same, so no major pattern there. And those were local, not national, so national (or Stockholm) media hardly cared.
