Inger Støjberg vs. Mette Frederiksen


The race for the Queen of the North is on. Inger Støjberg’s party has announced their candidate list for the parliamentary elections and it seems she is standing as a candidate in North Denmark (home region of the current prime-minister). Why? She wants to attract social-democrat voters to the blue camp. 

  • People are starting to call Inger’s party, DF 2.0, because, among her 30 candidates, 13 are transferred from DF. She also brought 11 candidates from Venstre and 1 from Konservative. Only 5 people on her candidate’s list are new to politics. 
  • Her first political proposal: 9 weeks extra of maternity leave (that can be shared freely between parents). The idea will cost 2,6 billion DKK, money that she plans to take from development aid. Reactions to the idea – DF is against; Nye Borgelige thinks the idea is too pro-european; Conservatives think it’s too expensive and Venstre is open to talk about it.
