Jan Björklund

Björklund Likely New Liberal Leader

It seems increasingly likely that Sweden’s Schools Minister, Jan Björklund, will gather sufficient support to become the next leader of the Liberal Party.

Five more party committees across Sweden have declared their backing for Björklund, leaving him as a clear favorite to succeed current leader Lars Leijonborg, who in April announced he was to step down.

Voting for the new leadership will be held at the party’s annual conference, in September.
