Sweden’s first female prime minister resigns after less than 12 hours
The Guardian says Sweden’s first female prime minister, the Social Democrat Magdalena Andersson, has resigned less than 12 hours into the job when her coalition collapsed, plunging the country into further political uncertainty.
Andersson said a decision by the Green party, the junior party in the coalition, to quit had forced her to resign. She added that she had told the speaker of parliament she hoped to be appointed prime minister again as the head of a single-party government.
The Green party said it would leave government after the coalition’s budget bill was rejected by parliament.
