October 3, 2022: -On Tuesday, Danes gave the Social Democratic Party a mandate to make a current state in a public election, which is seen as a vote of confidence in PM Mette Frederiksen’s handling of the pandemic and her leadership to yet another crisis.
The Social Democrats blockaded their most robust backing in over two decades, despite the objection of Frederiksen’s tenure for having centralized power close to the office and her contentious determination to cull all mink in the pandemic.
“Thanks to all Danes is entrusting us with your vote; it’s a big vote of confidence. I know you’ve had doubts along the way,” Frederiksen added early Wednesday.
In a nail-biter of an election, which differs, say, count projections by the country’s significant commentators put into question until the last moment if the ruling left-wing bloc could have its majority.
The Social Democrats are the biggest in parliament with 27.5% of votes.
The left-leaning bloc is getting 87 seats in the 179-seat parliament, giving it majority support from a Faroe Island directing and two yet-to-be-determined cores in Greenland, a sovereign region of Denmark that elects left-wing candidates.
Most left-wing parties likely present a dilemma for Frederiksen, advocating a broad coalition all over the traditional left-right divide, which argues that political unity is required during international uncertainty.
However, forming a broad coalition could be difficult, as most of her left-wing allies said they would prefer a purely left-leaning government.
Frederiksen is leading the country through one of the most chaotic terms to befall a Danish state in decades, which has to handle a pandemic, which soars inflation, and geopolitical uncertainty.
The election came following the sabotage of two pipelines bringing gas from Russia to Germany in Danish waters fuelling an unprecedented sense of insecurity among Danes.
“In Denmark, we have for different years been used to progress. Now we face hardship, and with the war in Europe, energy scarcity, inflation, and climate challenges, the combine,” Frederiksen added. She said she would submit the resignation of her one government to the Queen and seek to form a broad government on Wednesday.
She could start the negotiations with ex-prime minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen and his recent non-aligned centrist party, the Moderates, which have campaigned for a coalition of mainstream parties.
