Minister resigns over drink driving
Sweden’s youngest-ever minister, who came to the country as a refugee from Bosnia, announced her resignation after being caught driving under the influence of alcohol. Aida Hadzialic, 29, minister for secondary and adult education, revealed that she had been stopped by police in the southern city of Malmo. Tests showed she had an alcohol level of 0.2 grams per litre of blood – just the level considered an offence in Sweden. “That was the biggest mistake of my life ... I will take responsibility. I announce my intention to resign from my ministerial post,” an emotional Ms Hadzialic told a press conference at government headquarters.
