More Young Politicians Leave

The younger generation - and especially young women - are the most likely to quit politics in Sweden.

Since the local elections of 2006, almost every tenth politician has quit. But as regards young women, the figure is more like one in five, or 20 percent, with young men just behind on 17 percent.
