My name is Jan Ericson and I live in Ubbhult, which is in the municipality of Mark. My vision as a politician is that citizens should be in charge of their own lives. Man needs to be in focus, not the systems, the individual prioritized as supposed to the collective community. All people should be able to grow in accordance to their own ability.

During the years 2002 through 2006 I was the group leader for the local party and the governing majority in the municipality of Mark. In the 2006 election I was elected into the Swedish Parliament and In 2010 I was reelected för four more years. Im a member of the committée on education and the committée on labor market.
