Åkesson off sick until April

The leader of the Sweden Democrats party, Jimmie Åkesson, has requested that his sick leave be extended until the end of March, according to the tabloid Expressen.

Åkesson has been on sick leave because of burn-out since October of last year, right after his anti-immigration party became Sweden's third largest in elections the month prior.
