Background

After an even election result in the general election, 1921 the Swedish Social Democratic Party got 104 seats in the Riksdag, but the Right party and the Farmers' League did also increased theirs. Both sides took votes from the liberals. King Gustaf V had tried to ask Carl Gustaf Ekman to form a government based on the Right party, but without success. He then turned to Hjalmar Branting, whom declared that he would form a social democratic government, not a coalition government. After many discussions, the party formed a cabinet, with newer and younger names as ministers, excluding older and more known names.
