Hours After Becoming Sweden’s First Female PM Resigns

16

"I have told the speaker that I wish to resign…For me, it is about respect, but I also do not want to lead a government where there may be grounds to question its legitimacy.” ******** “I have told the speaker that I wish to resign…For me, it is about respect, but I also do not want to lead a government where there may be grounds to question its legitimacy,” said Magdalena Andersson at a news conference on Wednesday just hours after her being named as Sweden’s first-ever female prime minister. Despite receiving a standing ovation at the Swedish parliament on Wednesday, she ceased being the leader of the Nordic country in a matter of hours. VOA reported that she turned in her resignation “after suffering a budget defeat in parliament, and her coalition partner, the Greens left the two-party minority government.” Ms Andersson government’s budget proposal was rejected, favouring one presented by the opposition with a vote of 154-143. “A coalition government should resign if a party chooses to leave the government. Despite the fact that the parliamentary situation is unchanged, it needs to be tried again,” she added.
