Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven lost a mandatory confidence vote in parliament on Tuesday meaning he will step down.

Voters delivered a hung parliament in the Sept. 9 general election with Lofven's center-left bloc garnering 144 seats, one more than the center-right opposition Alliance.

The anti-immigration Sweden Democrats, with 62 seats, also backed the vote to remove Lofven, but it remains unclear whether they will back an Alliance government.
