Extra cash for Center Party candidates born abroad

Sweden’s Center party is giving its foreign-born candidates for September’s general election around 1 thousand 4 hundred US dollars to help them improve their campaigning.

The decision comes after media reports on how immigrants are seldom seen among the party’s candidate list.

The Center’s Secretary General Jöran Hägglund says he hopes the extra cash for the 6 per cent of those standing who have foreign roots will mean they’re more visible over the next couple of months.
