Andersson, called “Bulldozer,” was Sweden’s first female prime minister for a brief period of time

With straight blond hair and a no-nonsense manner, the 54-year-old defines herself as a “good, hard-working woman” who enjoys being in charge.

Stockholm:

With straight blond hair and a no-nonsense manner, the 54-year-old defines herself as a “good, hard-working woman” who enjoys being in charge.

She has a reputation in political circles for being straight and blunt, a quality that annoys some in a country where consensus is the general rule.

“The Bulldozer” was the title of a recent television profile of her.

“People even say they’re afraid of her, which is kind of strange, these elite political scientists or professors of economics saying they’re afraid of her,” said Anders Lindberg, political editor of the independent social-democratic daily Aftonbladet.

Andersson is noted for her tagline “Sweden can do better,” which she developed during her seven years as finance minister.

When the Scandinavian countries joined Austria, Denmark, and the Netherlands as the “frugal four” who advocated for a more modest European Covid-19 recovery plan, she gained a name for herself in Brussels for championing fiscal discipline.

“She talks in a style that reminds me of Angela Merkel. She isn’t always sure what she wants to say, but she always wins the fight because no one else can genuinely answer because she knows all the facts, “According to Lindberg.

‘I’ve set the groundwork.’

She is the only girl of an academy professor and a teacher, and she was born in the university town of Uppsala.

She made her reputation in the water initially, winning gold twice at the Swedish national junior championships.

She engaged herself in the Social Democratic Party, having joined its youth league at the age of 16, in addition to her studies at the Stockholm School of Economics and a year at Harvard.
