Swedish Social Dems leader to get fresh try at forming government

Sweden's parliamentary speaker said on Thursday he will once again ask Social Democrat leader Magdalena Andersson, who resigned only hours into the job during a day of political turmoil earlier this week, to form a government.

Andersson's resignation as prime minister on Wednesday was prompted by a decision by coalition partner the Greens to leave the government after the budget bill was defeated in parliament.

With no other obvious candidate, Andersson looks highly likely to win a second confirmation vote in the Riksdag which is likely to be held on November 29.
