"Leave or not leave will be a bone of contention when the Party gathered for the EU-valkonferens in Norrköping for the weekend."
"One of the heavy districts, Gothenburg, sweden, want the party to actively campaign for Sweden to leave the EU. It does not want the party leadership."
"the Party was opposed to Swedish membership of the EU. In the party program states: "
"But the party leadership wants to avoid the ”wrong” debate in the upcoming EU election campaign. Party leader Jonas Sjöstedt, himself a former member of the EUROPEAN parliament, has long tried to downplay the utträdeskravet and highlighted the work to improve the EU from the inside."
"In partistyrelsens proposal to the EU-platform is it, therefore, that ”it is not appropriate for us to push the issue of EU-exit now”."
"the Issue has in recent years become extra sensitive because the only other party that wants Sweden to leave the EU is The sweden democrats. The critics have not been late with to bundle V, and SD in the question."
"Recently, The sweden democrats, however, neither they want to push utträdeskravet longer. Now, it is about changing the EU from within."
"Vänsterpartisterna in Gothenburg believe that there is no reason for the party to change its principled position. It therefore opposes the partistyrelsens writing and in favour of a motion, rather, that it should stand: ”the Left still think that Sweden should leave the EU” in the EU-valplattformen."
"the TT has sought the president of the Göteborgsdistriktet Adriana Aires, but after receiving the rejection of the request to get the TT's questions in advance, have partidistriktet declined to comment on the motion."
"Powers is likely to have a majority among the delegates, but a compromise could still be that the issue not be mentioned in the valplattformen."
"Reservanter in the regional parliament and several district believes that the issue of secession does not belong in an election to the EUROPEAN parliament. Utträdesfrågan belongs in a general election and a change of the party's position should be decided at a party conference, highlights."
"the Theme of the partistyrelsens proposal for a EU platform is otherwise"
"Valkonferensen shall also determine the partistyrelsens proposal to the list for the EUROPEAN elections. Tops make current mep Malin Björk (V)."
"some 70 agents from across the country gather to valkonferens in Norrköping."
