"The political thriller that is going on within the leadership of the social democrats in Gothenburg then continues Ann-Sofie Hermansson was deposed as the leader and Marina Johansson was elected."
"– It is uncertain, even within the party, how to handle the situation, " said Jonas Hinnfors, professor of political science at Gothenburg university."
"During the course of the fullmäktigegrupp on Wednesday night voted an overwhelming majority to unseat Hermansson. Himself she rejects the requirement of his resignation and calls for rather than a vote of confidence in the extra distriktskongressen on 3 march. Now, it is unclear, even within the party, how to handle the situation, mean Hinnfors."
" I can do other than speculate at the moment but if you have not confidence within the party and particularly the party leadership, so doesn't the title matter, then you are still no leaders."
"the Dissatisfaction within the S Gothenburg should have begun long before the elections, but have so far been managed internally. When, after the elections lost votes, mainly to the newly-established party, the Democrats, and failed to establish cooperation in order to maintain maktpositionen, was the loss of confidence is obvious, according to Hinnfors."
"– Hermansson was criticised before the election for having tried to establish cooperation with the right-wing parties, but to succeed. You also believe that she departed from the order of priority as was agreed before the elections and instead highlighted the work against hederskulturen, when other issues such as housing and public services is considered as more important within the party."
