Martin Henriksen and Bent Bøgsted are seen here during a question and answer session at Christiansborg.

Bøgsted is thus the first member of parliament to publicly support Henriksen as the party’s new chairman.

Henriksen and Messerschmidt are the most prominent candidates

At an extraordinary annual meeting on 23 January, DF will elect a new chairman instead of Kristian Thulesen Dahl.

He announced after the party’s poor result in the local elections in November last year that he was resigning from the post.

You can register as a candidate for chairman no later than 7 January. Henriksen and the current deputy chairman, Morten Messerschmidt, are the most prominent candidates.

Henriksen is a former member of parliament, where he profiled himself as a foreign and integration spokesman. Today he is a member of the party’s main board.

There are also two other presidential candidates. It is main board member Merete Dea Larsen and member of Hjørring City Council Erik Høgh-Sørensen.
