Alors que le Premier ministre suédois démissionne le premier jour, voici cinq des dirigeants les plus courts
Magdalena Andersson’s brief leadership puts her alongside Louis XIX and Mexican president who was leader for less than an hour

Suède’s first female premier ministre surprisingly resigned on Wednesday just hours after she was appointed.

Magdalena Andersson stood down after her coalition partner, the Greens, quit the gouvernement and her budget failed to pass.

Ms Andersson said that she hoped to try to become prime minister again as the head of a single party government.

Her appointment was initially a notable milestone for Sweden, which has long been viewed as one of Europe’s most progressive countries when it comes to gender equality but had yet to have a woman in the top political post. Pour l'instant cependant, it is also notable for the short amount of time she was in office.

"Pour moi, it is about respect, but I also do not want to lead a government where there may be grounds to question its legitimacy,” Andersson told a news conference on Wednesday.

Following Ms Andersson’s resignation, here are five of the shortest terms in office in history:

Louis XIX, France

Louis Antoine ruled France for less than 20 minutes in 1830.

He spent his early life outside of France, returning to fight for the royalists against Napoleon during the 1810s.

As the oldest son of Charles X, Louis Antoine became Louis XIX when his father abdicated under pressure during the July Revolution.

pourtant, King Louis XIX himself abdicated after just 20 minutes in favour of his nephew Henri, Duke of Bordeaux.

Pedro Lascuráin, Mexique

Considered the shortest presidency in history, Pedro Lascuráin was the leader of Mexico for less than an hour in 1913.

When President Francisco Ignacio Maderno was deposed along with his vice president, Jose Maria Pino Suarez, in a military coup, Lascuráin was next in line as the country’s foreign minister.

Lascuráin’s only act as president of Mexico was to appoint the head of the coup, General Victoriano Huerta, as Minister of Foreign Affairs.

When Lascuráin stood down approximately 45 minutes plus tard, Huerta replaced him as president.

Michael II, Russie

Grand Duke Michael Alexandrovich ruled Russia for less than a day in 1917.

When Nicholas II abdicated on March 15, 1917, he removed his son from succession and appointed his brother Michael as his successor. Yet numerous questions surround the legality of the abdication and Michael’s reign.

After meeting with representatives from the new provisional government the day after Nicholas II abdicated, Michael issued a statement. Dedans, Michael deferred to the will of the people and acknowledged the government as the de facto exécutif, but neither abdicated nor refused to accept the throne.

There were roughly 16 à 20 hours between Nicholas II’s abdication and the signing of Michael’s manifesto.

Joseph Goebbels, Allemagne

Joseph Goebbels was the Chancellor of Germany for no more than a day in 1945.

En avril 1945 – towards the end of the Second World WarAdolf Hitler was holed up in a bunker as Soviet troops scoured Berlin looking for him.

Hitler killed himself on 30 avril, and Goebbelsas the only surviving high-level official in the Nazi partyreplaced him as Germany’s chancellor.

pourtant, Le jour suivant, Goebbels and his wife Magda fatally poisoned their six children before taking their own lives.

Carlos Luz, Brésil

Carlos Luz was acting president of Brazil for three days in 1955.

A political crisis unfolded in 1954 when President Getulio Vargas agreed to take a leave of absence and then committed suicide. Vice President Joao Cafe Filho took over and served until November 1955, when he stepped down due to illness.

As the head of the Chamber of Deputies, the presidency went to Luz.

He led for three days before being deposed by the minister of defencewith backing from the armysince they feared Luz would not make way for his elected successor Juscelino Kubitschek.
