Swedish PM Magdalena Andersson resigns hours after taking job

Magdalena Andersson has resigned as Swedish prime minister — just hours after being tapped for the job.

Andersson, Sweden’s first female prime minister, stepped down after suffering a budget defeat in parliament and coalition partner the Greens left the two-party minority government.

“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,” Andersson told a news conference.

Andersson, a 54-year-old economist who had been Sweden’s finance minister since 2014, took over briefly from her fellow party member Stefan Löfven, who announced his resignation in August. A fragmented Swedish parliament had backed Andersson as Löfven’s successor by one vote.
