Below are the key faces you'll need to get used to seeing over the next four years.
Social Democrat leader Stefan Löfven (left) is set to become Prime Minister. Green Party spokesperson Åsa Romson (right) will be his Deputy. Gustav Fridolin (centre) who is the Green Party's co-spokesperson will take over as Education Minister. Recognise the man on the far right of this picture? Former Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt has somehow crept into their snap.
I warmly congratulate Margot Wallström as new FM of Sweden. She brings EU experience to the position.

Morning readers – it's an exciting day for Swedish politics today – we get to learn the faces that will match the 24 new minister posts. We've already heard that 18 of the ministers will be from the Social Democrats and six will be from the Green Party (Miljöpartiet). But who will they be?
Time will tell. Social Democrat Leader Stefan Löfven is set to make his inaugural speech as Prime Minister any minute now.
The top spot, of course, was given to Löfven on Thursday when he was voted in as the new Prime Minister of Sweden, winning 132 yes votes. 49 people voted against him and 154 abstained.
It's 9am now, meaning the speech is beginning. More to follow.
