Copenhagen, November 24:  Hours after being tapped as Sweden's prime minister, Magdalena Andersson resigned on Wednesday after suffering a budget defeat in parliament and its coalition partner 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 has informed parliamentary Speaker Anderas Norlen that she is still interested in leading a Social Democratic one-party government. Magdalena Andersson, Social Democrat Leader, Voted In As First Woman Prime Minister Of Sweden.
