Eva Magdalena Andersson has again been selected for the top job.

She emerged triumphant after another vote in the Swedish parliament on Monday.

Last week, just seven hours after being chosen as Sweden’s first female prime minister Andersson’s budget proposal was defeated in parliament and she lost the support of the Green Party from her coalition.

A 54-year-old politician, Andersson, who since 2014 has served as the finance minister under former Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, is currently a president of Sweden’s Social Democratic Party since November 4, 2021.

As per the international diplomat’s opinion, the accession of Andersson to the top job in Sweden politics marks a milestone as the Nordic country Sweden has first ever a female head of the government.
