Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson on Wednesday acknowledged the defeat of the left and the success of the right/far-right coalition. As a result, during a press conference, the Socialist leader announced her resignation, which is due to be officially unveiled on Thursday.

Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson acknowledged the defeat of the left and the victory of the right-wing bloc and the extreme right in parliamentary elections on Wednesday after an almost complete count of the votes. As a result, during a press conference, the Socialist leader announced her resignation, which is due to be officially unveiled on Thursday.

The bloc, made up of three right-wing parties and the far-right Sweden Democrats (SD) party, has “a small majority, but still a majority,” she said during a press conference. “I will therefore ask tomorrow (Thursday) to be relieved of my duties as Prime Minister and responsibility for the rest will be passed to the Speaker of Parliament,” she added.

176 seats for the coalition

According to the near-final results, covering more than 99% of polling stations, the right/far right bloc led by Conservative Ulf Kristersson will get 176 seats versus 173 for the left bloc led by Magdalena Andersson.

Sunday’s election was so close that Wednesday had to wait for the count of tens of thousands of missing votes to validate the full results. Only those in a few offices were still missing on Wednesday evening around 7.45 p.m. local time.
