Sweden’s first female prime minister elected for the second time in a week

Stockholm [Sweden]November 30 (ANI): Magdalena Andersson has been reappointed Prime Minister, less than a week after she resigned within a few hours of taking office.

According to Aljazeera, Magdalene Anderson became prime minister and resigned a day later, after her budget was rejected in favor of one proposed by the opposition, which included a far-right party, and her coalition partners left.

Previously, Magdalena Andersson, leader of the center-right Social Democrats, became the country’s first female prime minister after the election and her historic term of office lasted about seven hours.

“According to constitutional practice, a coalition government should resign if a party leaves the government,” she said. “For me, it’s about respect, but I also do not want to lead a government where there may be reason to question its legitimacy,” she said on her Facebook account.

However, it is expected that Andersson will govern Sweden’s weakest governments in recent decades. Furthermore, Anderson’s budget will be formulated by three opposition parties, including the anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats.

Previously, the Social Democrats have been in power since 2014 with the support of parties united by little other than their desire to prevent the Sweden Democrats from influencing politics.

On the other hand, the center-right opposition has struggled to gather enough votes to form a majority government.

Furthermore, Magdalena Andersson is also expected to replace Stefan Lofven as S’s chairman. (ANI)
