Löfven asked to build new government: S-ledaren Stefan Löfven har fått i uppdrag att sondera läget för att bilda en ny regering, säger talman Andreas Norlén. Beskedet kommer efter att Norlén träffat partiledarna under en andra talmansrunda. Han uppmanar parterna att börja förflytta sina positioner så att en regeringsbildning ska vara möjlig. Löfven har två veckor på sig för sin sondering. Han har fått ett öppet mandat för att försöka hitta en regering som kan tolereras av riksdagen.
     
Swedish politics - latest twists in the efforts to form new government: Efter att M-ledaren Ulf Kristersson meddelat att han avbryter försöken att bilda regering är det nu upp till talmannen att passa över stafettpinnen. I dag träffar Andreas Norlén de övriga sju partiledarna för att diskutera hur man går vidare. Förhoppningen är att kunna ge sonderingsuppdraget till näste partiledare redan i dag. Mycket tyder på att det blir Stefan Löfven (S) som får ta över stafettpinnen. -Allt annat förefaller ganska egendomligt i det här läget, menar Tommy Möller, professor i stats vetenskap vid Stockholms universitet. -Det bästa för Sverige vore en
blocköverskridande lösning. Jag står till förfogande att leda processen, säger Stefan Löfven (S) vid en presskonferens efter mötet med talmannen Andreas Norlén. Det måste finnas en vilja från alla sidor om ett blocköverskridande samarbete ska komma till stånd, betonar Löfven. Löfven vill inte låsa sig fast i vilken form av blocköverskridande samarbete som han vill ha men han förordar inte en samlingsregering.
     
Large crowd watch as Suberu is laid to rest: A large gathering of family, friends and sympathisers were at S:t Bodvids begravningsplats, Huddinge, to witness the burial of Suberu on October 11th. They came from all over Stockholm and beyond. Suberu was a well-known figure in the African community and this was shown by the large number of non-Ghanaians who were there. Everyone who knew him wanted to pay their last respects. And they were many. Suberu passed away on October 4th, aged 76. He is survived by his wife, Ladi, and the children Al Wadood, Niimatha and Majeed.

The African immigrant in China: China’s leaders speak as globalisation’s champions. President Xi Jinping declared to African leaders in Beijing this month that “with open arms, we welcome African countries aboard the express train of China’s development.” Yet if Chinese leaders like the idea of goods and capital rushing at express-train speed, (ideally with Chinese drivers at the controls), they have never embraced the idea that people should move freely, let alone dream of acquiring hybrid, part-Chinese identities. Even marriage to a Chinese national brings no special residency rights. Read the rest...

Ghana, US agree deportation deal: The governments of Ghana and the United States of America (USA) have come to a compromise in their efforts to deport undocumented Ghanaian immigrants. This follows the U.S. government’s concern that the government of Ghana was not complying with international obligations regarding the issuance of travel documents to Ghanaians awaiting deportation. The U.S. Embassy in Accra followed up with a statement saying the U.S. will be forced to begin implementing a visa restrictions regime in accordance with their laws as a responsibility owed to the American people if the government of Ghana did not play ball >>>

Ghana to open an embassy in Norway: Ghana will soon open an embassy in Norway to boost bilateral relations between the two countries. This was revealed by Ms Shirley Ayorkor Botchway, Ghana’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, during an interview with Class 91.3FM’s Executive Breakfast Show host Moro Awudu in New York following a meeting between President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana and Norway Premier Erna Solberg – both co-Chairs of the Advocacy Group of Eminent Persons for the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Norlén (M) vald till talman: Andreas Norlén (M) valdes till talman vid omröstningen i riksdagen på måndagen. Valet var väntat. Han fick mer än hälften av rösterna och därmed behövdes bara en omröstning. Alliansens kandidat fick även stöd av Sverigedemokraterna och vann med 203 mot 145 röster över socialdemokraternas kandidat Åsa Lindestam. Norlén, som varit ordförande i riksdagens konstitutionsutskott (KU) de senaste åren får nu ta sig an upp giften att föreslå en statsminister kandidat som kan få stöd av riksdagen. Socialdemokraten Åsa Lindestam valdes, utan konkurrerande kandidat, till riksdagens förste vice talman. Sammanträdet ajourneras nu fram till klockan 14, därefter sker val av andre och tredje vice talman. I valet av andre vice talman tänker Socialdemokraterna rösta på V-kandidaten Lotta Johnsson Fornarve, uppger gruppledaren Anders Ygeman (S). Därmed går S emot SD:s kandidat Björn Söder. Ygeman säger att Söder (SD) är en olämplig kandidat.
