Sweden First Female Prime Minister

On Wednesday, Ms. Andersson was elected as the first-ever female prime minister because, under the law of Swedish, she only required a majority of MPs not to cast the vote against her. Around 100 years after Swedish women have cast the vote, the 54-year-old Social Democrat leader was given a standing ovation by sections of the parliament, or Riksdag. Ms. Andersson’s election at the head of a minority government followed an eleventh-hour deal with the opposition Left Party, in exchange for higher pensions for several Swedes. Not only this but she also holds the support of coalition partner the Greens.

Out of the 349 members of the Riksdag, 174 voted against her but on the top of the 117 MPs who backed her, a further 57 declined, giving her winning by a single vote. An ex-junior swimming champion from the University City of Uppsala, Mr. Andersson started her political career in the year 1996 as being a political adviser to Goran Persson (then-Prime Minister). She also spent the past 7 years as a finance minister.
