Lena Hallengren (S), will replace Åsa Regnér as Minister for Children, the Elderly and Gender Equality, writes Dagens Nyheter. According to Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, Hallengren has the right background for her new position, as she has broad political experience and much knowledge when it comes to socio-political questions. Lena Hallengren says herself that she sees her most important task as being to continue improving the lives of the elderly in Sweden. There are only six months left until the next election, however Hallengren is positive she will be able to impact policy during this period. Hallengren has previously been Deputy Minister for Education and the Social Democrats spokesperson on social issues. The previous Minister, Åsa Rengér, stepped down upon her appointment as Deputy Executive Director at UN Women.
