After 43 days of negotiations, Denmark got a new government – Altengate

After 43 days of negotiations, Denmark got a new government – Altengate

Acting Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen announced to the Queen on Tuesday evening that she was ready to form a central government composed of Social Democrats, Liberals and Moderates.

– These are the three parties that have agreed to take responsibility together. We’re looking forward to telling you more about it tomorrow,” Mette Frederiksen told Amalienborg on Tuesday.

The Queen’s visit this evening will be followed by a press conference on Wednesday, where the leaders of the three parties will present the “outlines and balances” in the new government documents. Then the government ministers will be presented in Marienborg on Thursday.

Mette Frederiksen did not want to reveal more political content in her brief interview with the press after the Queen’s visit. But she says all three sides have big ambitions for climate, job creation and reforms.

– What distinguishes this government? Yes, cooperation and this together we want to do a lot on the political front. It will be a working community and we’ll tell you more about that tomorrow. The fact that we enter government together does not mean that we agree on everything. But now we have chosen to enter into cooperation with each other, said Mette Frederiksen, because that is what we think is best for our country.

Historic government cooperation

By agreeing to form a new government, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen has achieved the goal for which she went to the elections, the ambition to form a government above the centre.

– I’ve always thought this is what our country needs, Mette Frederiksen said Tuesday night.

This is the first time since the failure of the S + V collaboration in 1978 that the historic enemies – the Social Democrats and the Liberals – have once again shared a government office.

This time the moderates joined them. This means that the new government has a total of 89 states. Therefore, it is a majority government, as there are no 90 seats against it. This is because the government is supported by no fewer than three North Atlantic mandates, so the government can, in theory, get all of its policy proposals approved in Parliament without having to negotiate with the supporting parties.

However, the new government will aim to reach broad agreements.

– We will seriously investigate whether we can get a greater majority than we give on our own, says Mette Frederiksen.

Participation in central government was not Fenster’s ambition from the start. But after the election, in which Mette Frederiksen won a narrow red majority of 87 seats, the party began to gravitate toward the Social Democrats, arguing that the party would seek as much influence as possible.

However, the path to government participation required a major change of course for Fenster, which party chairman Jakob Elliman Jensen himself described as a salvaging promise. For example, both moderates and liberals dropped a request for a legal assessment of whether a case could be brought against Mette Frederiksen for her role in the controversial mink case.

This caused concern within Finster, where the strongest votes yet supported Jakob Elliman Jensen’s approach to the Social Democrats and ambition to form a broad government.

The government platform – which will be presented on Wednesday – will now show the impact that the three parties individually have managed to have on the policy of the new central government.
