1. Sweden’s new leader resigns on her first day
Magdalena Andersson was voted in as Sweden's first female prime minister, but hours later, she resigned. The economist's plans for forming a coalition government with the Green Party fell apart after her budget failed to pass.
She said: “There is a constitutional practice that a coalition government should resign when one party quits. I don't want to lead a government whose legitimacy will be questioned.”
After receiving a standing ovation by some politicians in parliament, she was voted back into the position less than a week later. And we thought British politics was eventful.
