Frontrunners Won’t Run for Party Leader

Published tisdag 12 december 2006 kl 11.39

Two of the frontrunners to take over the leadership of Sweden’s Social Democrat party say they will not be standing for the post.

European Commission Vice President has said previously she doesn’t want the job, but many party members have hoped she would change her mind. That seems unlikely now, after an interview in a party magazine, in which Wallström repeats that she wants to stay in Brussels.

The other frontrunner, former Development Assistance Minister Carin Jämtin, has now also declined seeking the job as party leader. She tells Swedish Radio News she wishes to continue to lead the opposition at Stockholm City Hall.
