Former PM Going into PR

Former Swedish Prime Minister Göran Persson has found a new job.

Media here are reporting that Persson will start working at the public relations agency JKL Sweden in August. The head of JKL, Anders Lindberg, says it is a ”dream” to get Persson on his team.

The former prime minister will be joining the group as a consultant.

Mona Sahlin, Persson’s successor as head of the Social Democrat Party, has not commented on Göran Persson’s new job, and her press secretary says there are no plans to comment on his ”career choices”-
