Sweden’s parliament for the second time in less than a week elected Social Democrat Magdalena Andersson as the country’s new prime minister, leaving the country’s first female leader to navigate a fragmented and fraught political landscape.
The former finance minister won a similar vote last week but resigned only hours later after a junior coalition partner abandoned the government over a lost budget vote.
Andersson will now form a minority government consisting only of her own party.
The Social Democrats hold 100 seats in the 349-seat parliament and will have to rely on support from several other parties to implement policy.
