Liberal Party's new leader vows to honour government agreement

2:24 min

The Liberal Party formally chose Nyamko Sabuni on Friday as its new leader.

The party's conference voted unanimously, as Sabuni was the only candidate left in the race. Analysts say she now faces a tough challenge to unify her party and restore its support among voters.

After last year's election, the Liberals chose to strike a political deal with the centre-left government, something that was divisive yet backed by the then-leadership who wanted to deny the Sweden Democrats influence.

Listen to the full report to hear more details, including Radio Sweden's interview with Nyamko Sabuni from 2006 where she speaks about integration.
