Sweden’s youngest cabinet minister, 29-year-old Bosnian refugee, Aida Hadzialic, Minister for Secondary and Adult Education, has resigned.

Hadzialic announced her resignation during a press conference at government headquarters in Stockholm on Saturday after she was caught driving under the influence of alcohol.

She disclosed how the police in the southern city of Malmo stopped her and she tested 0.2 grams alcohol level per liter of blood, just the amount considered an offense in Sweden.

During her resignation notice, Hadzialic who was seen as the future of the Social Democrat party said: “That was the biggest mistake of my life… I will take responsibility. I announce my intention to resign from my ministerial post.


“I understand that a lot of people are disappointed in me. And I am angry with myself, and certainly I deeply regret it.”

Hadzialic was born in Bosnia and immigrated to Sweden at the age of five, in 1992, with her parents fleeing the war in the Balkans.

She became involved in the Social Democrats youth movement in high school and went on to be elected a municipal councillor at age 23.

She became the youngest  government minister in Sweden’s history at the age of 29 in 2014.
