Swedish Center, Liberal parties to back Social Democrat Lofven as PM: paper

STOCKHOLM - Sweden s Center and Liberal parties have agreed on a deal to give Social Democrat leader Stefan Lofven a second term in office, potentially ending months of political deadlock, daily Aftonbladet reported, citing unnamed sources. The deal has still to be formally approved by the parties governing committees. September s election delivered a hung parliament and the centre-left and centre-right blocs have been at loggerheads on how to form a government without the support of the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats, a party with roots in the white-supremacist fringe and who hold the balance of power.
