The government spokesman pointed out that the team of the new head of government is made up only of members of SAP, who were received on Tuesday by Swedish King Carl Gustaf, who congratulated Andersson on his legislative approval.

Last Monday, Parliament finally gave the green light to the Social Democrat with the vote of 101 representatives in favor and 173 in opposition, from the 349 legislators, two less than those required in the Nordic nation to invalidate her selection by majority.

The 54-year-old SAP leader and former Finance Minister succeeds Stefan Lofven, also a Social Democrat, who became Prime Minister in 2014.

In mid-June this year, Lofven became the only head of government in the country’s history to lose a vote of a motion for censure in Parliament against him, which led to his temporary removal from office.

Although two weeks later legislators approved his re-election, the growing rejection to his management forced him to announce at the end of August his resignation from the leadership of his party and his resignation as head of government, which he presented on the 10th this month.

Andersson recently pointed out that as Prime Minister, one of her main purposes will be to ensure the victory of SAP in the parliamentary elections scheduled for September 2022.

To achieve this, according to observers, she must expand the electorate support for her party, renewing the Social Democracy to regain traditional voters who now switched to other forces.
