Sweden's parliament will vote on a new prime minister for a third time on Jan. 16, the speaker said on Friday, in an attempt to break the deadlock three months after a general election delivered a hung parliament.

"It is high time Sweden had a government," speaker Andreas Norlen told reporters.

Parliament has already rejected Social Democrat leader Stefan Lofven and centre-right leader Ulf Kristersson as prime minister and the speaker did not say which name he would put forward on Jan. 16. GRAPHIC - Election scenarios: https://tmsnrt.rs/2p45tJh
