Party Leader Anna Troberg, Deputy Party Leader Marit Deldén, and Party Secretary Henrik Brändén have announced today that they will not make themselves available to their posts next year. The party would like to take this opportunity to thank them for the large amount of work they have contributed.
At the same time the Pirate Party is ready for a term with many changes. We have recently appointed an organizational audit team which, during the winter and spring, will revise the party constitution and refresh the party’s internal structure.
We have much work ahead of us, including combating problems in the party’s working. Everyone should feel welcome in the Pirate Party, regardless of ethnicity, gender, sexuality or religion, and everyone should have the same rights. We already have a process for combating sexual harassment, which we want to develop and clarify.
We in the Pirate Party Board are proud of our party’s strong stance on issues surrounding equal rights and including LGBT. Earlier this year we have been named as the best party by RFSL. Good politics is not everything, and we must work so that everyone can feel comfortable in the party’s internal jargon and environment.
Finally, we would once again like to thank Anna, Marit and Henrik for all their work – now the baton is handed over to the next in line, who will take us forward in 2015 and at an election victory in 2018.
Pirate Party Party Board,
December 1, 2014
