Sweden’s first female prime minister resigns within hours of being elected
Sweden’s first female prime minister resigned less than a day after being elected.
According to Reuters, Magdalena Andersson, leader of the ruling Social Democratic Party of Sweden, resigned as prime minister on the 24th local time when the Green Party, a minority coalition government partner, withdrew from the coalition and the budget she submitted was rejected.
However, as the head of a single-party government, he has expressed his intention to envision a new government in the general election next year.
When Andersson was elected as Sweden’s first female prime minister, foreign media reported that the era of female prime ministers had begun in all four Nordic countries: Iceland, Denmark and Finland.
