Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson announced that she would resign after an unprecedented right-wing and far-right bloc narrowly won Sunday's vote.
Exit polls had initially predicted a narrow victory for left-wing Andersson's camp but as the evening wore on, and the vote count supplanted the exit poll, the results tipped in favor of the conservatives.
There are eight parties running to win seats in the 349-seat parliament, or Riksdag. They belong to one of two major blocs, one with four left-wing parties and another with four conservative parties.
