STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden's parliament will vote in early December on whether Social Democrat Stefan Lofven, the current caretaker prime minister, should form a new administration, the speaker said on Friday.

A hung parliament has already voted out Lofven, prime minister for four years until a September election, and there is little indication he has enough support to pass the vote.

Parliament has also rejected centre-right Alliance leader Ulf Kristersson as prime minister.
