Persson’s Premiership Called Too Presidential

Published måndag 14 november 2005 kl 12.09
With cabinet colleagues, Lena Hjelm-Wallén gives Göran Persson a 50th birthday present

Former Swedish Deputy Prime Minister Lena Hjelm-Wallén says in recent years government here has become too presidential.

Quoted in a new book, she says Göran Persson as prime minister dominates his cabinet ministers in a way that hasn’t been seen here previously. According to Lena Hjelm-Wallén, who was also Sweden’s Foreign Minister, cabinet decisions here were previously more collective.

The quote comes in a chapter called “President Persson” in a new book about the history of the Social Democratic party in the province of Västmanland.
