Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen will tender the resignation of her government, she announced Wednesday morning to members of her party, the Social Democrats.
With a narrow majority of one seat, Frederiksen does not rule out the possibility of forming a broad-based government with several parties across the political spectrum.
A broad-based government is a rare form of governance in the country, but Frederiksen believes it would be the right approach, given the current crisis. The Prime Minister also said it was very likely that there would no longer be a “majority in its current form” in the government.
While the Social Democrats won a majority by one seat, they received 27.5 per cent of the vote, their best result in 20 years.
In all likelihood, Mette Frederiksen will be responsible for forming a new government.
