Odell not to stand for party leader

Former Christian Democrat minister, Mats Odell, says he won't be standing against current party leader Göran Hägglund in any leadership race.

Odell had been nominated by one party district to become the new party leader, but Odell says he does not want to do anything that could risk splitting the party.

Odell is currently group leader in parliament, after losing his seat as a minister in the government.
