The reason why there will be no debate on Tuesday is that the Minister of Energy Khashayar Farmanbar (S) can not participate, reports Aftonbladet.

The minister is in corona quarantine.

– He is in family quarantine in accordance with the Swedish Public Health Agency's recommendations, says his press secretary Amalia Pedersen to Aftonbladet.

Khashayar Farmanbar, however, is said to have tested negative for covid-19.
