Regret to inform that a couple of minutes ago the Swedish parliament did – as expected – approve the Lisbon treaty. The Left Party and the Greens voted against. The vote was preceeded by a 9 hours long debate. The Left Party´s proposal on postponing the whole vote (in order to gain time) didn´t gain any major support either. 1/6 (59) our of the 349 MPs was needed for that.
The final outcome was.
The Left Party has 22 MPs and the Greens 19 -> 41 critics. A few of them couldn´t attend the vote, that´s why we didn´t even sum up to 41.
So Sweden becomes the 25th country to sign. A pity.
