Liberalerna hold party congress

From 15 to 17 November, Liberalerna – one of ALDE members in Sweden – hosted a party congress to discuss the party’s vision for ‘Sweden in 2030’ and to decide on a new party board.

During the three days, Liberalerna discussed key social issues and proposed measures in five key areas – fighting crime and extremism, school segregation, self-sufficiency, equality and democratic values and safer housing – to achieve a ‘suburban lift’. This package of legislative changes and measures will contribute to increased security and has the goal of having no vulnerable areas in Sweden by 2030.

When it comes to the party’s structure, Nyamko Sabuni will continue as the party’s leader, with Johan Pehrson and Christer Nylander chosen as the first and second deputy leaders.

“I am honoured to have been entrusted with the task of leading Liberalerna at a time when liberalism is needed more than ever. Now we are off to the 2022 elections with a full focus on solving societal problems,” Sabuni said after her re-election.

Nyamko Sabuni also delivered a speech at the congress, highlighting the importance of the coming decade when it comes to climate change and societal equality, among others.

“Every decision Liberalerna make, every reform we carry out, it is another piece of the puzzle to increase people’s freedom. Together we are pushing Sweden forward to become the country of opportunities. Sweden needs a strong liberal party,” she summarised.
