Sweden’s outgoing Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson has handed in her resignation to the speaker of parliament, she said on Thursday, paving the way for a change of government.

The speaker is now expected to give the head of Sweden’s Moderate Party, Ulf Kristersson, a mandate to form a new government after Sunday’s general election, which gave the right-wing bloc a majority.
