"Aftonbladet's leader board is the independent social democrat."
"There was a time when Gothenburg was seen as the Socialists' storefront. A self-confident industrial city characterized by an underdog mentality where the party ruled, dominated and delivered."
"But at the election in the fall received only 20 per cent of the votes. After the night of the election, they managed to make themselves impossible of their koalitionsvänner the green Party, Feminist initiative and the Left party. The alliance took over, it's lost power after 24 years, and today's not a single presidiepost in the municipality."
"It is the disaster aftermath as yesterday, got some sort of endpoint when the party in a distriktsextrakongress in the house of the People ousted Ann-Sofie Hermansson from the post of a group leader in the municipal government."
"The socialist collapse in Gothenburg has come to be associated with her. She has the party's distriktsstyrelse, which is led by the ex-minister Anna Johansson – accused for the difficulties in cooperation, in order to exclude the party from the important decisions and to allow their officials to manage policy."
"the Process leading up to yesterday have been the bitter and broken, but at a press conference performed by Ann-Sofie Hermansson chosefritt and carefree. She departs and so it is no more with it."
"– There is no one who has died, she noted laconically."
"of course There is a political conflict here. Hermansson has wanted to that's should embrace their role as the largest party in the opposition in order to get to so much S policies as it will go. In formal collaborations loses S its identity and must take into account that are not good, seems she to reason. Anna Johansson and circle around her want to re-establish relationships to the rödgrönrosa parties. If it is so can actually S control the city again."
"When Ann-Sofie Hermansson three years ago was elected the social Democrats leader, she talked in interviews about her party has lost touch with citizens and that the labour movement was no longer in motion. "
"She said to Göteborgs social democracy must re-connect the contacts to the people who previously voted on the S but now"
"It was about the workers on the island Hisingen, which vredgats that's introduced congestion taxes, and pushed through the infrastructure project Västlänken and these people needed to offer something. Maybe something around the welfare quality or segregation, she thought in a great interview with Göteborgs-Posten.nValresultat from last fall shows that she did not succeed."
"But the challenge she saw, is not less for the person who eventually gets the party's confidence to succeed her."
