Sahlin set to ditch Nuder
08:29 CET+01:00
Sweden's former Finance Minister Pär Nuder is expected to be asked to step down from his position as economic spokesman for the Social Democrats.

Party leader Mona Sahlin has been less than pleased with Nuder's handling of the job, Aftonbladet reports.

According to the newspaper, the influential post will be filled instead by 42-year-old former Trade Minister Thomas Östros.

Östros is currently in charge of a group responsible for restructuring the party's labour market policies.

Pär Nuder will retain both his seat in parliament and his place on the party's executive committee, Aftonbladet reports.
