Swedish PM resigns after in budget fallout

In Sweden, the newly-elected head of government Magdalena Anderson has announced her resignation. On the day the Social Democrat leader was elected, the parliament passed a state budget drafted by the opposition, which made a junior coalition government resign, Swedish news portal TheLocal.se. reports.
Andersson was elected with minimum negative support to the post on Wednesday, November 24, and announced her resignation on the same day after a turbulent series of events. After her election, the Centre Party withdrew its support for Andersson’s budget as it was against the concessions made to the Left Party, resulting in insufficient support for the new PM’s budget to pass in the Riksdagen.

Swedish legislators, however, passed an alternative budget presented by the opposition conservative Moderates, Christian Democrats and far-right Sweden Democrats with 154 votes to 143.
This, in turn, made the Green Party leave the government, forcing Andersson to step down. Greens leader Per Bolund stated that his party could not tolerate the opposition’s «historic budget, drafted for the first time with the far-right» meaning the Sweden Democrats and left the government’s coalition, TheLocal.se reports.
