Government to look into new rules for ex-ministers

On Thursday the new government said it would investigate bringing in a cool-off period to stop politicians taking jobs in business straight after leaving politics. 

The Social Democrats had previously been opposed to the idea, but Minister for Public Administration Ardalan Shekarabi says they are now willing to look into the suggestion.

"With the background of the debate that we have had, not least over the past year, I want to keep open the possibility of investigating a cooling-off period in this area", he told Swedish Radio News

After losing the 2006 election Social Democrat leader Göran Persson went to work for a top PR firm, and just this week it was announced that former Finance Minister Anders Borg is to join the board of one of Sweden's biggest companies, industry conglomerate Kinnevik.

“It is the most exciting Swedish corporation right now”, says Borg told newspaper Svenska Dagbladet.
