The leader of talks to form a government in Sweden, Ulf Kristersson, is seeking an extension for the negotiations after failing to reach a deal on a cabinet by his deadline, local media reported.

Kristersson will ask the parliament’s speaker, Andreas Norlen, for two more days to conduct the talks, newspapers Expressen and Dagens Nyheter reported, citing sources they didn’t identify. Svenska Dagbladet earlier said the head of the Moderates had missed the 11 a.m. deadline set for the talks.
