– At my request, David Lange has chosen to resign from his position in Parliament. He has sat in Parliament since we joined in 2010 and has done well for the party, says Lindberg.

– This does not detract from his reckless behavior yesterday, which he himself understands. Against this background, he chose to leave his seat in the Riksdag.
