Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen Calls General Election

DENMARK

Denmark Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen has called a general election to be held on November 1.

  • Frederiksen has called the election to head off a no-confidence vote from left-leaning coalition partner, the Social Liberal Party, who announced intentions to proceed with a vote on Thursday.
  • The government has faced criticism for an order to cull the country's entire farmed mink population over COVID-19 fears.
  • Bloomberg: "An investigation found that her government, concerned that Covid-19 could mutate and transmit between the furry animals and humans, acted too fast when it gave the cull order without a legal framework in place."
  • Preparations for a general election may complication ongoing international investigation of supposed sabotage of the Nord Stream gas pipelines in the Danish exclusive economic zone of the Baltic Sea.
  • Whilst Frederiksen's ruling Social Democrat party remains the most popular, an opinion poll released this week from the Danish national broadcaster DR showed that Frederiksen's personal approval has dropped to a low of 43%.
