Just over an hour ago, another party showed up on the field and confessed suit for their position on a state court case against Inger Støjberg (V).
It was the Conservatives who, after a long period of deliberation, declared themselves as advocates of a federal lawsuit against the former Minister of Foreign Affairs and Integration.
Today is Støjberg’s day, and the Folketing’s two largest parties are still unresolved, but that may soon change.
Berlingske political editor Kasper Krogh gives points of reference here for what the day will offer and what to be aware of.
What should we expect to happen today?
»That we get to decide whether Inger Støjberg is brought before a national court. It has been a long process with the Instruction Commission and since further legal investigation, but now it stands and falls with whether there is a majority for a federal court case or. The Left and the Social Democrats have yet to resign, and their mandates are crucial. The Conservatives have this morning announced that a unanimous parliamentary group that supports a federal court case. The Liberal Party has just attended a group meeting that takes place physically at Christiansborg and it is expected to last until around 10 o’clock. The Social Democrats will meet for a virtual group meeting, but we do not know the time, «Kasper Krogh and continues:
»Later today – at 3 pm – the committee in the Folketing – the Subcommittee on the Rules of Procedure – will meet, which can formally launch the process towards a Supreme Court. So by then we should expect to have a clarification, but it will probably be this morning. “
What should we pay special attention to?
»The process in the Liberal Party will be particularly interesting. First and foremost, because together with the Social Democrats, they are crucial on the scales with mandates. But also because there is a lot at stake in the case of the Liberal Party’s chairman Jakob Ellemann-Jensen. He is in a difficult balancing act, where he may have to stand behind a decision on a federal court against his deputy chairman until very recently. “
“That debate can shake up all the internal power struggles and disagreements that are plaguing the party right now. Therefore, it will also be interesting to see if the party will release its members of parliament by a vote on a federal court. Inger Støjberg, you can not expect votes for a state court against herself, and she has also clearly stated that. But the question is whether more members of the party are voting against and what that means internally within the party. “
What will be the process from here?
»If when the day is over there is a majority in the Folketing for a Supreme Court, then the process starts towards it. The Committee on the Rules of Procedure will present a report and a recommendation that must be considered in the Folketingssalen twice before having a formal court case. It is expected to happen in early February. Whenever this has happened, an actual indictment must be drawn up and an indictment must be appointed. And then the Supreme Court must be convened with its 30 judges, so that a very large legal system is set in motion. But Supreme Court President Thomas Rørdam tells Politiken today that the case itself should be settled within a few months. “
