The leader of the Social Democratic Labor Party of Sweden, Magdalena Andersson, resigned after the decision of the Greens to leave the government. By this time, only a few hours had passed since the moment she was elected Prime Minister of the country. This was reported on November 24 by the Swedish radio station Radio Sweden.
“Newly elected Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson resigned just hours after she was elected Prime Minister in a parliamentary vote,” the radio station reported.
It is also noted that on Wednesday, November 24, the draft budget of the Swedish government did not gain a majority following the voting, which took place in the Swedish Riksdag (the country’s parliament) – the majority of the deputies supported the draft proposed by the opposition.
Earlier, on November 10, it was reported that Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Leuven had submitted a letter of resignation. It was noted that Leuven’s departure should open the way for his designated successor Magdalena Andersson.
On June 21, the Swedish parliament for the first time passed a vote of no confidence in the country’s prime minister.
