Social Democrats in crisis meeting

Published tisdag 19 september 2006 kl 12.41
Outgoing Prime Minister, Göran Persson arrives at his party's crisis meeting on Monday evening

The defeated Social Democratic party held a crisis meeting on Monday night in Stockholm to formally discuss the election outcome.

In the election, outgoing Prime Minister Göran Persson’s Social Democrats registered their worst election result since 1914.

The party which is well-accustomed to the reigns of power received 46.2 percent of the vote compared to 48.1 percent for the alliance of centre-right parties, led by Fredrik Reinfeldt’s Moderate Party.  

Taking part in the crisis meeting were Social democratic party leadership and heavyweights within the labour union movement. It was decided that a special group will investigate where the party’s election campaign went wrong.

Media attention has now shifted to who will lead the party after Göran Persson - a selection process that is tipped to be a bumpy ride for the party where there are already calls for a complete renewal of the current party leadership to make way for a new generation.
