In a session of the Council of State on 31 May 1884, the Schweigaard/Løvenskiold Government handed in its resignation, due to the Liberal Party's pressure that the government should be dependent of the Storting. Permission to leave was granted by King Oscar II in a session of the Council of State on 26 June 1884. At the same time, Johan Sverdrup’s Government was appointed. This was the first Norwegian government dependent on support by a majority in the Storting. The government represented the Liberal Party.
