# Sweden became the latest Nordic country to get a female prime minister when Magdalena Andersson was elected to the position. The 54-year-old Finance minister succeeds Stefan Löfven who resigned recently as head of government as well as the leader of the Social Democrats. According to Sky News, she was chosen after reaching a last-minute deal with the Left Party. However, Andersson resigned less than 12 hours into the job when her coalition collapsed. She said a decision by the Green party, the junior party in the coalition, to quit had forced her to resign.
