Social Democratic Party leadership

After the Social Democrats lost in the 2006 election, Göran Persson announced his retirement as party leader on the election night. It was clear that the party now wanted a female leader. Mona Sahlin was mentioned as a possible successor, but not considered to be the most likely candidate. Both Margot Wallström and Carin Jämtin received stronger support amongst local and regional party organisations. Ulrica Messing was also mentioned as a possible candidate. Wallström, Jämtin and Messing declared however that they would not stand for the post and instead supported Sahlin, leaving Mona Sahlin as the only serious candidate. On 18 January she was officially asked by the party's Election Committee to stand as party leader, and accepted. On March 17, she was unanimously elected at the extra party congress in Stockholm. A general election (Swedish: ) was held in Sweden on September 17, 2006 to elect members to the Riksdag. ...

In January 2007, the new centre-right government of Sweden had dropped greatly in the polls, and the left bloc (including the Green Party) with much stronger support. This provides Mona Sahlin, as leader of the biggest opposition party, with excellent opportunities to lead the opposition against PM Fredrik Reinfeldt.[3] It is proposed that this article be deleted, because of the following concern: Crystal ball, user has created future months and dates before, and been told not to (See User Talk:Jose and Ricardo). ...

Mona Sahlin is often described as a scion of the party's right wing, and a number of left-wing party members criticised her candidacy for party leader. Much of this criticism was silenced in January 2007 when the chairman of the Trade Union Confederation, Wanja Lundby-Wedin, expressed full support for Sahlin[4] as well as several powerful party districts around the country.[5][6] LO logo The Swedish Trade Union Confederation (Landsorganisationen i Sverige or LO) is an umbrella organisation for sixteen Swedish trade unions that organise blue collar workers. ...

Criticism and controversies

Nanny controversy

Sahlin has said that part of being a Social Democrat is to think that it's "cool" to pay taxes. But in 1990 the newspaper Expressen reported that Sahlin had employed a nanny to take care of her children without paying the employment tax.[7] Year 1990 (MCMXC) was a common year starting on Monday (link displays the 1990 Gregorian calendar). ...

The "Toblerone Affair"

In October 1995 the newspaper Expressen revealed that Sahlin, who was then serving as Deputy Prime Minister and was the top candidate to succeed Ingvar Carlsson as Prime Minister, had cashed about two thousand Swedish kronor on her working charge card, which was only for working expenses. She had also used the card to buy clothes, and to rent a private car (the money was always repaid, and Sahlin described how she saw use of the card as "advance pay"). Sahlin also claimed that the work charge card and her private charge card looked exactly the same and that some of the work charges were unintentionally debited as personal expenses. Sahlin decided to take the case to court to prove her innocence and be cleared of all accusations of misconduct. During this controversy it was also revealed that Sahlin had many unpaid parking fines at the Swedish Enforcement Administration, and that she often had missed or been late in paying her children's kindergarten fees.[7] Year 1995 (MCMXCV) was a common year starting on Sunday (link will display full 1995 Gregorian calendar). ...

At a press conference on October 16, Sahlin said about the allegations: "I bought two Toblerone, diapers and cigarettes" (Swedish: "Jag köpte två Toblerone, blöjor och cigaretter") - after this statement the scandal came to be known as the "Toblerone affair". At the same time, Sahlin declared that she would take a time out from politics and thereafter took a vacation in Mauritius together with her family and two bodyguards. Her vacation in Mauritius was funded by Swedish tax money. At another press conference on November 10, Sahlin finally announced her resignation from the Swedish government and also from the Social Democratic Party leadership candidacy.[7] Sahlin was eventually declared innocent on all counts by the court.[citation needed] An opened Toblerone Toblerone (IPA pronunciation: ) is a chocolate bar made by Kraft Foods Switzerland. ...

In 2002 Sahlin's car was prohibited from being driven, yet received a number of parking tickets during this time. Sahlin has infact received numerous parking tickets (98 in just one year) and many have gone to "kronofogdemyndigheten" (The IRS). Eventually the government gave her a reserved parking space to solve the matter.


Allegations of nepotism

In August 2006 it was revealed that Sahlin's daughter, Ann-Sofie Sahlin, had been given a temporary substitute position at the Swedish embassy in Washington, D.C. In her letter to the consul-general in Washington, Pontus Järborg, on January 9, 2006, Ann-Sofie Sahlin referred to her mother. For the three months substitute Ann-Sofie Sahlin was paid 5,500 USD (approximately 40,000 SEK). Mona Sahlin denied the allegations that she had helped her daughter to get the job.[8] August 2006 is the eighth month of that year, and has yet to occur. ...
