STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - The speaker of Sweden's parliament picked Centre Party leader Annie Loof to try to break the political deadlock with Sweden standing without a government two months after an election dead-heat between the centre-right and centre-left blocs.

Speaker Andreas Norlen said Loof did not necessarily aim to be prime minister but would work to find common ground between Sweden mainstream parties on policy which would then make forming a new government easier.
