2. The red camp (the left-wing parties) 


  • Troubles between the social democrats and the social liberals (Radikale Venstre): Mette Frederiksen cannot get a new mandate as prime minister without the support of all the red parties. However, the relationship with Radikale Venstre turned cold, after the social liberals gave two ultimatums to Mette: she must call for elections on the 4th of October the latest and she needs to give up on the idea to send asylum seekers to Rwanda. 
  • The ultimatum method used by Radikale Venstre is not welcomed by the population as their support is dropping (at 4,6% now), while the support for the social democrats is rising (at 25,4% now). 
  • The social democrats proposed to replace the SU for social and health education students with an actual wage. Their income would increase by roughly 7.000 DKK more per month. They hope this way more people will choose to take a SOSU education
  • The municipalities are asking the government to intervene with financial support to coverthe extra costs caused by inflation. The government declined to offer support. The municipalities threatened that they will be forced to fire public employees and lower the quality of the welfare services if the government doesn’t intervene.
