The reason for her move is the fact that the draft state budget has not been approved by the House of Representatives.

Stockholm. Newly-elected Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson resigned on Wednesday, just hours after parliament expressed confidence.

The reason for her move is the fact that the draft state budget was not approved by the House of Representatives and the Green Party left the coalition government. The Associated Press and Agence France-Presse reported this.

“There is a constitutional practice that a coalition government must resign if a coalition party leaves the coalition,” Anderson said.

“I don’t want to lead a government whose legitimacy is in question,” she said, adding that she hopes to be re-elected at a later date.

Anderson has already told Parliament Speaker Andreas Norlin that she remains interested in leading a one-party social democratic government.

The Swedish parliament on Wednesday approved the government of new Prime Minister Andersen. Former Finance Minister Andersson (54) replaced former Prime Minister Stefan Lofven at the helm of the Swedish Social Democrats in early November.

Löfven served as the country’s prime minister for seven years and officially resigned two weeks ago after losing the confidence of Parliament.
