The final election results have now been counted, and there is still no clear view of who will form the next government.

Election officials presented the final count, Sunday, with the ruling Social Democrats confirmed as the biggest party in parliament. However, neither the red/green bloc nor the centre-right Alliance managed to secure a governing majority in the 349-seat parliament.

Sweden now faces weeks of uncertainty while parties from both blocs try to form a government.
