The slim majority that the government has in the Parliament was in danger this week after another member of the Parliament from Moderaterne (social-liberals) left the party.


 28-year old Mike Villa Fonseca broke the party code of conduct when he decided to date a 15-year old girl. As a consequence, he had to leave Moderaterne. Further on, he will continue as an independent in Parliament. 

  • Funny enough, it is also an independent (that left Moderaterne), Jon Stephensen that decided to pledge its support for the government coalition and therefore ensure the slim majority. He was also kicked out of the party after he decided to write some unwanted messages to a 19-year old girl from the youth section of Moderaterne. 
  • The OG of the social-liberals in Denmark, Radikale Venstre is ready to join the government coalition, in exchange for some ministerial positions. It’s possible that they might join during the summer 2024 reshuffle of the government to ensure a stronger majority in Parliament. 
  • If the government parties lose their majority in Parliament, then they will be forced to negotiate with the opposition to pass legislation, and that will come at a severe cost. Most likely, if the majority is lost, then new parliamentary elections will be called.
