Swedish Prime Minister, Reinfeldts and his wife, separateThursday, 08 March 2012
Swedish Prime Minister, Fredrik Reinfeldt and his wife, County Commissioner, Filippa Reinfeldt are reported to be separating. The news came a day after reports emerged that the family was selling their family house in Taby, in Stockholm, Sweden.
This press release in full:
Here's an email to inform you that Frederick and Filippa Reinfeldt have separated. Fredrik Reinfeldt will be registered on the single-occupancy family's houses.
The separation was announced in a brief email message from the Prime Minister's press department. When his press officer, Roberta Alenius, was contacted to verify the accuracy of the mail, she would not comment on the matter further:
“We have sent out an email. What is in the e-mail is the only information we give,” says Roberta Alenius.
As recently as last Tuesday came reports that the family Reinfeldt have sold their villa in Taby, north and Stockholm in the same area he bought condominium townhouses. That is where the Prime Minister will now be registered.
The couple Reinfeldt were married in 1992 and have three children, 18, 16 and 11 years. It is not yet known whether the separation is thought to lead to a divorce. Spouses who have children are forced to do a period of six months before a divorce can go through if they have dependent children under 16. This is true even if both spouses agree to divorce.
Political science professor, Ulf Bjereld does not think that the separation will affect neither Frederick nor Filippa Reinfeldt's political careers.
Even former prime minister, Göran Persson divorced in 2002 and it did not affect political background of Persson.
