Åkesson unlikely to return to work before 2015

The leader of the Sweden Democrats party, Jimmie Åkesson, is not likely to be back at work before 2015, according to the party's press secretary Martin Kinnunen, who was interviewed by the tabloid Aftonbladet on Wednesday.

Shortly after the party was voted as Sweden's third largest in national elections this fall, Åkesson went on sick leave due to burn-out.
