Sweden Re-Elects First Female Prime Minister

Written by on November 29, 2021

After her initial resignation, Sweden has re-elected their first female Prime Minister, Magdalena Andersson as the Nordic nation’s head of government.

Ms Andersson had earlier resigned just seven hours after first being elected prime minister last week.

But in a 101-173 vote with 75 abstentions, the 349-seat Riksdag re-elected Ms Andersson, leader of the Social Democrats as prime minister and is expected to name her Cabinet on Tuesday.

According to the Swedish Constitution, prime ministers can be named and govern as long as a parliamentary majority ā€” a minimum of 175 lawmakers ā€” is not against them.

Ms Andersson stepped down as prime minister last week after the Swedish Green Party left her government’s coalition.
