PES International Policy Head Joins Swedish Government



The PES Presidency today offered its warmest congratulations to Ann Linde, Head of International unit, who has been appointed as the new State Secretary for Home Affairs by Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven. Linde has served in the PES Secretariat since May 2013, leading the organisation’s work on issues as diverse as trade relations with the USA, humanitarian support in the Middle East, and exchanges on good governance with countries in Asia.

PES President Sergei Stanishev said, “We are delighted for Ann Linde and congratulate her on this deserved appointment. We thank her for her service in the PES, and look forward to working together with her in Europe’s newest Social-Democrat Government in Sweden. Ann has made an excellent contribution to our party and will be missed by the PES staff".
