  • Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson is widely seen as the front-runner to take over after Stefan Löfven when he steps down as party leader and prime minister in November.
  • Political analyst Nicholas Aylott at Södertörn University says a number of things speak in her favour, including her experience and the fact that she could become Sweden's first female prime minister.
  • Aylott also gives an assessment of what the Social Democrat Party looks like after ten years under Stefan Löfven - and what that means for the new leader.
