STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Swedish Deputy Prime Minister Asa Romson, the joint head of the Green Party, announced her resignation on Monday, dealing a blow to the strained centre-left coalition government.

The decision follows a proposal by the election committee of Sweden's junior coalition partner to replace Romson after a series of scandals involving Green Party members.
