Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Lofven announced a reshuffle of his Cabinet after two ministers had asked to resign.

Lofven named Per Bolund as the new minister for the environment and the deputy premier, replacing Isabella Lovin who has left all her political posts, including that of a co-leader of the junior coalition partner Green Party. Asa Lindhagen will take over Bolund’s portfolio of the financial markets’ minister, among other changes, Lofven said at a press conference on Friday.
