Bo Lundgren

Bo Axel Magnus Lundgren (born July 11, 1947) is a Swedish politician. He is the former leader of the Moderate Party. [ The parliamentary election in Sweden, 2002] , Anders Widfeldt, "Electoral Studies" 22, #4 (December 2003), pp. 778–784.] Lundgren was born in Kristianstad in Skåne. Between 1991 and 1994, he served as Deputy Minister of Finance with special responsibility for taxation. He was also Minister for Sport.

He was elected party leader by the 1999 party congress, succeeding Carl Bildt, but resigned only four years later in 2003, following poor results in the Swedish parliamentary election in 2002. [ Lundgren, Bo] , Who's Who, "The Local". Accessed on line December 19, 2007.] He was succeeded by the pragmatist Fredrik Reinfeldt. Lundgren was generally considered to be a politician with a little too much emphasis on budget numbers and specific tax cuts, which might have contributed to the party's poor showing that year.Fact|date=February 2007 He was criticised for promising to cut taxes by 130 billion Swedish kronor, a vision that according to his opponents might have jeopardised the welfare state.

Lundgren is still respected among Moderates for his principled stand on issues as a leader, especially since Fredrik Reinfeldt has been pursuing more centrist policies. In 2004, Lundgren was appointed to the post of director general of the Swedish National Debt Office.
