The atypical reason why Stefan Lofven, the Prime Minister of Sweden, resigns from the head of the Government

Lofven, prime minister since October 2014, announced in August that he would step down as party leader and then head of government.

By doing so, he wants to give his successor the opportunity to better position himself ahead of the upcoming parliamentary elections, which will take place in late summer 2022.

Magdalena Andersson, Minister of Finance, was elected the new leader of the Social Democrats on Thursday. She will also succeed Lofven as prime minister.
