The first female Prime Minister of Sweden, Magdalena Andersson, has resigned just hours after she assumed the role.
Her resignation comes as a shock to many.
She had the worst start to her job as a Prime Minister, and was subsequently forced to step down from the role.
Her resignation came about after the Green Party, a junior partner to her Social Democrats party, said it will not be part of her administration which has been forced to implement a 2022 budget that has been amended by the opposition party.
In announcing her resignation, she stated that “I understand that this may look very messy, and what has happened is completely unique.”
She continued “Despite the fact that the parliamentary positions appear unchanged, the issue should be tried anew. I don’t want to lead a government whose legitimacy might be questioned.”
She announced her resignation less than eight hours after taking office.
The amendment means that some key Government’s reforms such as extra week off for families, are abandoned in favor of more spending on the justice system and a gasoline tax cut.
