STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Social Democrat leader Stefan Lofven will be given at least two more days to try to form a new government as Sweden tries to resolve a post-election gridlock, parliament said in a statement on Sunday.

Speaker Andreas Norlen had previously said he planned to propose Lofven as prime minister on Dec. 3, but on Sunday he said that would take place at the earliest on Dec. 5.
