Zurich [Switzerland], 26 November (ANI / Sputnik): The Riksdag decides on Monday whether the Social Democrats’ party leader Magdalena Andersson will become the country’s first female prime minister after the first vote ended in a flop.
Andersson took over as prime minister after Stefan Löfven on Wednesday but had to leave her resignation hours later, after a split over the budget for 2022 caused her minority coalition partner to leave.
Speaker of the Riksdag Andreas Norlen said that he had consulted the parties by telephone and planned a new vote in the Riksdag with 349 seats. He said he would once again propose Andersson as the next prime minister.
The vote is scheduled to take place on Monday, 29 November at 1 pm [12:00 p.m.] The timetable is preliminary “, read a statement on the Riksdag’s website.
Swedish Radio reported that all parties promised to vote as before, which indicates that Andersson will probably secure the nomination – this time to a Social Democratic one-party government with her in charge. The next general election is in September 2022. (ANI / Sputnik)
