On Tuesday, September 29, a Council of State was held at the Royal Palace. During the council, each minister present informs about political initiatives, investigations and ongoing legislation within their respective ministries and answers questions from the King.
The Councils of State are held regularly and led by the King. On this occasion, the council was held in Lovisa Ulrika's dining room to be able to keep extra distance between the participants.
According to the 1974 form of government, the Prime Minister is responsible for keeping the head of state informed about the affairs of the state. Formally, it is the King who convenes the government for council, but the decision is made in consultation with the Prime Minister.
