Former industry minister and education minister, Leif Pagrotsky, has said he does not want to be the new leader of the Social Democrats, according to news agency TT.

"I let the election committee know that I am not available for this role and that it is because of personal reasons," Pagrotsky told news agency TT. However, TT reports that the election committee did not pose the question to him formally.

"I understood that my name had come forward in the speculations and I am nominated, so I decided to let them know that I am not prepared to take on a task with so much responsibility," said Pagrotsky.

Social Democrats in West Sweden had recently suggested Pagrotsky for the position of party leader, which will soon be left vacant by the outgoing Mona Sahlin. In November after the party's worst election in recent memory, she announced that she would resign. She will leave Parliament on April 1.

Four people are speculated to remain in the running now: parliamentarians Thomas Östros, Mikael Damberg, Håkan Juholt, and Sven-Erik Österberg.
