The person was found to have debts totaling over SEK 188,000 with the government agency handling debt collection (Kronofogden), according to the Expressen newspaper online.
The Green Party's deputy head of press Adam Bergsveen told Expressen, "We stopped the recruitment, because the security check wasn't finished. Unfortunately, we haven't had enough time after the election. Some of the recruitments have gone faster than the process."
The man has instead been offered another job with the party, reports news agency TT. Earlier this week, it also came to light that another of the Green party's top officials in the Government Offices (regeringskansliet) had been convicted of smuggling drugs as recently as 2012.
