New faces for scandal-hit Sweden Democrats

4:45 min

The anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats have named Sven-Olof Sällström as their new economic spokesperson, replacing Erik Almqvist. He’s served as an officer in the military and managed a grocery store.

Former high school teacher Richard Jomshof takes over as the spokesperson for law and order issues, after Kent Ekeroth. He’s often been named as one of the party’s ruling Gang of Four.

Almqvist and Ekeroth resigned their posts last week after the revelation of a video filmed by Ekeroth in which Almqvist made racist and sexist slurs.
