Leadership contender talks core values

One of the top contenders to lead Sweden's biggest party says that the Social Democrats need to focus on the long-term picture.

In an interview with news agency TT Leif Pagrotsky calls his own chances of becoming party leader a 'long shot'.

He says that a successful Social Democrat party needs to be able to deliver economic growth, full employment, investment in infrastructure and on education.

But, writes TT, Leif Pagrotsky has no details for how his party can win the next election, in 2014.
