Sweden’s first female prime minister resigns

Sweden’s first female prime minister, Magdalena Andersson has resigned from office just eight hours after she became prime minister.

Andersson was forced to resign after the Green Party — a junior partner to Andersson’s Social Democrats — said it would not be part of an Andersson government if forced to implement a 2022 budget amended by the opposition.

Although her resignation is technical, she is still ready to lead a one-party cabinet and will now face a new vote.

A centre-right party that has previously supported the government refused to back her in a parliamentary vote on Wednesday, sealing the fate of the government’s bill in favour of a competing proposal by conservative parties.
