  • Sweden's Green Party chose a new spokeswoman at the weekend, Märta Stenevi.
  • Political scientist Nicholas Aylott says it points to the struggling party wanting to raise its profile by choosing a skilful politician rather than an idealist.
  • The new spokeswoman will lead the party together with spokesman Per Bolund, and will also become a minister in the Social Democrat-led government.
