An additional option would cost 400 million

The elections held in September this year cost about 400 million crowns. Authorities expect an additional choice to land around the same figure. Stock photos.

Organizing an additional election would cost as much as the usual choice, Dagens Nyheter writes.

That's about 400 million SEK, according to the authority, which is responsible for preparing an additional election.

"The big challenge in the Swedish system is to get to the production and distribution of the rolling mill and the fleet," says Anna Nyqvist, senior vice president of DN.

The most demanding things are state aid to municipalities, production of election materials, distribution and postage as well as staff costs.

Since the outbreak of democracy we have only one option in Sweden in the elections in the second chamber of 1958. But if Ulf Kristersson (M) does not receive enough support as prime minister on Wednesday and three more votes fail, there will be an additional choice.

The elections must then be held within three months of the fourth election.
