Magdalena Andersson Elected As Sweden’s First Female Prime Minister For A 2nd Time

Magdalena hopes to hold the job for a decade if she can conquer the obstacles of minority government and an election due to be held in less than a year.


Magdalena Andersson has been elected as Sweden’s first female prime minister for a second time.



Her historic initial appointment as Sweden’s first female prime minister lasted for just hours.



Now, just a few days later, Magdalena Andersson is back and hopes to hold the job for a decade if she can conquer the obstacles of minority government and an election due to be held in less than a year.


“It feels good, and I am eager to start working,” Andersson told reporters at a news conference Monday, in which she committed to an agenda focused on the environment, welfare and tackling crime.



The 54-year-old former finance minister made history last Wednesday as the first woman to hold the premiership, nearly 100 years after the Scandinavian country extended women the right to vote.
