Magdalena Andersson

Sweden’s parliament has confirmed Magdalena Andersson as the country’s first female prime minister, succeeding Stefan Lofven as leader of the centre-left Social Democrats.

Sweden is the only Nordic country in which a woman has never been elected as a national leader. Ms. Andersson, the current finance minister, did not win the vote on Wednesday.
According to the BBC, she was elected since Swedish law merely required a majority of MPs not to vote against her.
