DF has five main requirements in order to support Ellemann or Pape


When Morten Messerschmidt has to decide who he will point to among the blue prime ministerial candidates in the event of a blue majority after an election, the DF chairman will particularly focus on five demands.

These are the main demands, which deal with some of the changes that are most important for the Danish People’s Party to implement if the future government becomes bourgeois.

That’s what Berlingske writes.

The demands are aimed at both Liberal chairman Jakob Ellemann-Jensen and Søren Pape Poulsen, party leader of the Conservatives. The whole idea with the demands is precisely to be able to negotiate, says Morten Messerschmidt to Berlingske.

“It is a very, very good situation for us that there are now two candidates. It gives us the opportunity to make demands and to have them met even before we get started, because I get the opportunity to talk to both of them and thus raise the price”, he says to the newspaper.

It is the DF chairman’s ambition to secure the party a place in the government for the first time. He describes the proposals as ‘completely decisive’ for the party. However, according to Berlingske, the proposals are not definitively ultimate.

The Danish People’s Party is known to belong to the stricter wing in immigration policy, and several of the demands are also about immigration policy in particular.

The first is that a ban on wearing Muslim headscarves in schools and colleges must be introduced. Next, that all asylum seekers are flown to another country.

The party also wants to do away with Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s (S) way of managing power.

Furthermore, according to DF, there must be more referendums if politicians want to enter into international cooperation, and then the elderly must have a higher seniority check as well as their own law with clear minimum rights.

In contrast to the most recent DF chairman, Kristian Thulesen Dahl, Morten Messerschmidt will not refuse to support an agreement that contains reductions in the top tax.

Messerschmidt will immediately start talking to Ellemann-Jensen and Pape Poulsen about DF’s demands.

The party will point to a blue prime minister, he assures. He will not say who it will be until the negotiations are over.

There must be elections for the Folketing on 4 June 2023 at the latest.
