Call for Lemne to be replaced

In recent weeks Confederation of Swedish Enterprise head Carola Lemne has come under fire over her role as the chair of Uppsala University. Lemne has been accused of being power hungry and of wishing to have full control over the appointment of the university’s vice chancellor. Eight professors have sent a letter to Helene Hellmark Knutsson, the higher education minister, calling for Lemne to be replaced. Lemne claims she is misunderstood.
