Magdalena Andersson has been approved by Sweden’s parliament as the country’s first-ever female prime minister, after replacing Stefan Lofven as leader of the centre-left Social Democrats.

Sweden is the only Nordic country never to have elected a woman as a national leader before. Ms Andersson, who is currently the finance minister, did not win Wednesday’s vote.

However, she was elected because under Swedish law she only needed a majority of MPs not to vote against her, BBC reports.
