If you thought Boris Johnson’s victory in Monday’s no-confidence vote was too close for comfort, take a look at what has happened in Sweden.

Sweden Justice Minister Morgan Johansson, backed by Magdalena Andersson’s Social Democrats, narrowly survived a vote of no-confidence on Tuesday by one vote.

Of Sweden’s 349 parliamentarians, 174 voted against Johansson – who is under fire for surging crime rates – falling just short of the simple majority needed to remove a minister. In total, 97 voted in his favour, 70 abstained and eight abstained.

The ballot was touted as a major opportunity for lawmakers to topple the Prime Minister’s minority government, which has struggled in recent weeks to join NATO amid fierce opposition from Turkey.

Johansson and Andersson’s immediate futures were secured after Amineh Kakabaveh, an Iranian-born independent and former Kurdish militant, abstained because of her vocal opposition towards president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Swedish politics have been turbulent since Andersson took office. She was forced to resign as the nation’s leader within hours of taking the post back in November following the collapse of her coalition.

With her administration hanging by a thread and a general election set for September, Andersson will have mountains of work to do if she is to have any chance of cementing her position in high office.
