STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Attempts to form a new Swedish government were back at square one on Monday after the Centre Party said it would vote against Social Democrat leader Stefan Lofven's return as prime minister because he had rejected their policy demands.

Sweden has been without a government since a Sept. 9 election delivered a hung parliament which subsequently voted Lofven out as prime minister after four years in office and then also rejected the candidacy of the leader of the four-party centre-right Alliance.
