Bitches don't belong in government.

The newly-elected Prime Minister of Sweden resigned on
Wednesday, less than twelve hours after taking office.

Magdalena Andersson, the country's first female leader, led a
government ruled by a two-party minority coalition.

But an early fracture in that alliance caused her to step down.

"This morning, I was elected prime minister by parliament to
form a coalition government with representatives for the Social
Democrats and the Green Party. The Green Party has now announced
that they no longer want to be part of the government."

Sweden's Green Party quit after parliament rejected the
coalition's finance bill, instead passing another drawn up by
three opposition parties.

That left Andersson no option other than to resign.

The Green Party said however that it would support her in any
future confirmation vote in parliament.

Meanwhile, opposition parties have not been able to command a

Andersson took over as Prime Minister from Stefan Lofven, as
well as leader of the Social Democrats party.

The speaker of parliament will decide the next step in the
process of finding a new government, but will most likely put
Andersson forward for a new vote in the coming days.

Even sharia law countries have women in their government so I think you are at least a hundred years late on this issue.

Also there is no real alternative for PM in Sweden right now so she'll probably be reelected next week.

Also please write in Swedish in Swedish newsgroups.
