Frontrunner Sahlin Not a Shoo-In

Even if she is still the front-runner, Mona Sahlin is apparently not a shoo-in for the leadership of Sweden’s Social Democrat Party.

The newspaper “Dagens Nyheter” reports that of the 24 party districts, 14 remain doubtful about the former cabinet minister, while she enjoys solid support in 4 districts and acceptable support in 4 others.

Most Social Democrats have made it clear they want to woman to take over the helm of the party, but the leading candidates, European Commission Vice President Margot Wallström and former cabinet ministers Carin Jämtin and Ulrica Messing have all said they don’t want the job.

The search for a new party leader began after Göran Persson resigned, following last September’s elections. Although they lost power, the Social Democrats remain Sweden’s largest political party.
