Front-runner Anna Kinberg Batra is to be asked to become the new leader of the conservative Moderates, TV4 news reports, following a meeting of the party's nominations committee.

The committee met today to go through the nominations put forward by the party's districts, with the vast majority of them proposing Kinberg Batra as leader, following the resignation of former Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt following September's general election defeat.

Anna Kinberg Batra is refusing to comment on the news: "I respect that this is a process that is not yet completed. But I am honoured to get the large amount of support from across the country", she told the tv channel.

Kinberg Batra has been an MP for eight years, and is married to comedian David Batra. She is currently the Moderates' group leader in parliament. She would be the first female leader of the conservative Moderates if selected.

The conservative Moderates nominations committee will officially present its proposal for the new party leadership on December 11th, the new leader will be elected in a party conference in the Spring.
