Debunk claim:

In 2014, the Swedish government made a deal with the opposition to not disagree on a budget until 2022, which prevented snap elections. That deal was subsequently broken, but that has not had any effect so far. The next general election in Sweden is coming up in 2018. http://www.svt.se/nyheter/inrikes/decemberoverenskommelsen-detta-har-hant
