The prime minister of Sweden, Magdalena Andersson says she will stand down after her government was defeated in Sunday’s election.

Andersson’s centre-left coalition looks set to narrowly lose to a bloc of right-wing parties, 176 seats to 173, with 99% of the votes counted, with moderate Party leader ULF Kristersson now expected to form a government.

The bloc includes the Sweden Democrats, a far-right party that has campaigned against rising gang shootings.

The final result is still to be confirmed after a recount, which is standard practice in Sweden, but despite that Andersson accepted defeat at a news conference yesterday and said she would officially resign on today.
