Moderates Employ Gender Quotas

Published onsdag 5 december 2007 kl 13.01

The Swedish Moderate party have abandoned their long term opposition to gender quotas on their list of candidates for the 2009 EU elections.

For the first time the four places must be equally divided between the sexes, with the top two positions going to a man and woman.

Party secretary Per Schlingman is happy with the decision. In an interview with Svenska Dagbaldet newspaper he said the proposals may also be used in the nominations process for the candidate in the next Swedish election in 2010.

The head of the Young Moderates was not so enthusiastic. Agreeing with the need for equal opportunities, he believes allocating quotas is not required.
