STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - The Swedish opposition will press on with a no confidence vote against Defence Minister Peter Hultqvist, but will only do so after the summer recess, the four-party Alliance bloc said on Thursday.

"The reason for our request for a vote of no confidence against DefenCe Minister Peter Hultqvist is unchanged," the Alliance said in a statement.
