It has that familiar stormed briskly in the Liberals and their list of candidates to the EUROPEAN elections in may.
At the weekend met the prime minister of sweden, and gave her the top candidate Cecilia Wikström, an ultimatum – either the candidate she to the party or remain on their two boards. She chose the latter.
Jesper Brandberg is the mayor and group leaders and vice kommunstyrelseordförande in Västerås. He is also one of the hundred members of L's second-highest controlling body, partirådet. In an article on SvD's Debate, writes the mayor that he ”accepts the board's dismissal of Wikström”.
He believes that it is partirådet who have made a decision on the list to the EUROPEAN elections and that it is only those who have the power to change it.
a new partiråd later in march to decide on a new list.
" I was happy with the list when Cecilia Wikström was in the top, it was a great list. For my part, and for most others, it was known that she had the board and it should not be a novelty. Why, you think She was a great candidate for three weeks ago but not now, " says Jesper Brandberg to DN.
He will participate in the partirådet to be held in a few weeks and says he's going to argue that She should continue to top the EU list. Jesper Brandberg says he does not know how many of his partikollegor in partirådet who follow his line, but that several have asked themselves about the party's handling of the matter.
in our party that the worker's party is not the parent of partiråd or landsmöte. It was the reason we had a partiråd from the very beginning, to the board of directors thought it was a great decision. Then took partirådet decision on this list and then has the powers gone and changed partirådets decision. It is what I think is questionable, " says Jesper Brandberg.
– It is, as in all associations, they have the annual meeting. If a general meeting decides something then the board does not then come a week later and change the decision. It is important with interndemokrati, to stick to it.
" Yes, but the considerations I made before I went to partirådet, I can understand that you may need to think it over. And I did, I took my mission seriously and think that this is going to reconcile and the other should in that case have done the same thing. I do not understand how it can feel to anything in a year and then come up with something that makes it absolutely impossible, " says Jesper Brandberg.
