Sweden's Schools Minister Jan Bjorklund was Friday elected as the new leader of the Liberal Party, one of four parties in the ruling centre-right coalition.

Bjorklund replaced veteran Lars Leijonborg, who has been leader for the past 10 years at a party conference in Vasteras, west of Stockholm.

Leijonborg was however to remain as education minister in the current government led by conservative Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt.
