Changes/Restructuring[edit]

I came here from a link on the main page, and to me it's not obvious BUT MOM SAID JESSICA DO YOUR HOME WORK OR I WILL TAKE YOUR PHONE AWAY!!!!!

the government was restructured.  There's a little blurb about the restructuring, but how is it different from the situation as it was before?  Also, the table is helpful, but again the contrast with the previous system would be well-placed in the table.  I don't know enough about the subject myself or I'd help, but I just wanted to point out some confusion that I'm sure I'm not alone in.  --ABQCat 18:04, 21 Oct 2004 (UTC)

treaty title[edit]

Rather than the crown (monarch) signing treaties, it appears that the Government of Sweden (as a corporate body) signs (for example, the Treaty establishing a constitution for Europe). I think this warrants mention, and needs confirmation and clarification. – Kaihsu 18:00, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

Up until the 1974 Regeringsformen ("Instrument of Government", the most important part of the Constitution of Sweden), all laws and treaties would be promulgated under the name of the monarch. By the mid 1970s the role of the monarchs was purely symbolical, though technically the monarch formally wielded considerable power, just the monarch of the UK does today. Under the new Instrument of Government many of the roles and positions were formally abolished, including (I guess) the part about treaties being signed in the name of the monarch. I think this is pretty trivial, and not necessarily worthy of being mentioned. This belongs in the article of the Instrument of Government, instead. —Gabbe 23:13, 9 January 2006 (UTC)
Would you like to add something at Constitution_of_Sweden#Instrument_of_Government, please? Cheers. – Kaihsu 16:10, 10 January 2006 (UTC)
While it may seem as pretty trivial in the context of contemporary Swedish political discourse: it is clearly not trivial from an international point of view since it differs from a fairly common standard. RicJac (talk) 15:27, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Missing ministers?[edit]

There seems to be a lot of people missing from the list, I can see 14 Ministers when the article states there are 22. For instance, the Minister of Justice and the Minister of Foreign Affairs are definitely missing. Ansaheli 12:38, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

Just some edits from a known vandal that unfortunately had gone unseen for over a week. I reverted them, thanks for the notification. -- Jao 13:29, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

Govt offices[edit]

Update sign: Hmm... It really seems a bit unclear to which ministry the different ministers belong. Tobias Billström e.g. officially belongs the Ministry of Justice. Does a "Ministry of Integration" really exist? See: The Prime Minister's Office Bondkaka 19:57, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

Reinfeldts new cabinet has a Ministry of Integration, see www.moderat.se.

Important notice[edit]

The government section of the "Outline of Sweden" needs to be checked, corrected, and completed -- especially the subsections for the government branches.

When the country outlines were created, temporary data (that matched most of the countries but not all) was used to speed up the process. Those countries for which the temporary data does not match must be replaced with the correct information.

Please check that this country's outline is not in error.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact The Transhumanist .

Thank you.

Missing Information[edit]

Can members of the Swedish Government be simultaneously members of Parliament as in the United Kingdom or must they vacate their seats upon appointment to the cabinet as in the Netherlands? That crucial piece of information seems to be missing from the article.161.24.19.112 (talk) 17:03, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
