Anti-European Union Party Leader to Leave Swedish Political Scene

Nils Lundgren

The leader of Sweden’s anti-European Union ”June List” Party, Nils Lundgren, has announced that he will resign and that a new leader has to be chosen this summer.

The party surprised many observers by coming out of no where and capturing 3 seats in the European Parliament in 2004. But hopes of winning seats in the Swedish parliament were dashed when the party received only ½ a percent in the last election here and pretty much disappeared from the Swedish media.

Lundgren claims he never considered himself a real politician, that he wants to return to academic research and writing and that the role of a party leader in Swedish politics is exaggerated.

However, some observers insist that the white haired, mustached Lundgren’s popularity captured many votes and not his anti-EU line, and that his departure will torpedo what’s left of the party.
