"There has to be an end to all the talking about that," Borg told news agency TT, adding he hopes to stay as finance minister if the centre-right coalition remain in government after the general elections next year.
As far as he was aware, Borg commented, Reinfeldt would also be staying as party leader. In his speech to the party, Borg said Sweden's econonmy was very vulnerable and that it was the government's job to protect Sweden.
He also defended his recent proposal not to scrap a marginal tax on high-income earners by saying such a reform would disproportionately benefit the wealthy, and would therefore be hard to justify to voters.
The Party Secretary Kent Persson opened the event with a speech where he said moderates need to attract voters from the entire country and be less focused on Stockholm.
