– We now want new arrivals to be placed in the prosperous areas, says Jonas Attenius (S), Gothenburg municipal councilor, to SVT.

“For example, affluent areas that previously did not received so many new arrivals, Jonas Attenius mentions his own neighborhood Torslanda”, writes SVT.

However, the media giant does not say that Jonas Attenius lives in a residential area in Torslanda and therefore does not intend to enrich his own residential area with ethnic diversity.

The proposal only applies to the municipality's tenancies.
