Hours after being tapped as Sweden's prime minister, Magdalena Andersson resigned on Wednesday (November 24, 2021) 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.
