4-days of Moderate politics in Örebro

Moderate party kicks off convention

The conservative Moderate Party has begun its four day party convention in Örebro.

During the next few days, 200 politicians will discuss 180 motions and a number of proposals from the party leadership. Members are expected to decide on a new program of ideas, a new political program for towns and cities, and a new foreign policy.

Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt opened the convention with a speech. "We'll discuss ideas and we'll talk about the future, always from the point of view of the human being," he said.
