Leadership elections Swedish style
One of my hobbies is pointing out how hardline the Swedish Social Democrats are on disciplinary matters to naive British lefties.
They've just had a leadership "election", which elected party moderniser and right-winger Mona Sahlin.
An Election Committee of Party high-ups "consults" local branches.
Then it decides who the most suitable candidate is and presents a single name to an extraordinary party conference. Which then unanimously elects the nominee.
No nominations, no OMOV, no electoral college...
