Sales of Public Housing to Resume

Swedish Radio News reports that Housing Minister Mats Odell plans to rescind the law protecting public housing from being sold off.

The law was adopted four years ago by the former Social Democrat government after local councils run by the center-right parties began to sell apartments in public housing to residents’ associations.

Now that the center-right is in power nationally, the Housing Minister says the new law will be presented to parliament during the spring. He expects it will go into force on July 1st.
