All things considered, the Liberal Party’s plans to propose cuts in the employment policies is probably the more important piece of news from a general perspective but here goes:
The government is reduced by one minister following the merger of the Trade and Europe portfolios: We now have 10 Social Democrats, 6 Social Liberals and 6 from SF. Relative to the distribution of seats in the Folketing, the Social Democrats are being generous to their junior partners. (Cf. my calculations here)
The Social Democrats and SF swapped portfolios: SD cede Social Affairs (where daycare returns from Christine Antorini’s Ministry of Children and Education) and Transport to receive Business Development and Foreign Trade (the latter a junior portfolio in the Foreign Ministry). I should probably applaud as my guess back in 2011 was that SF would be better served with a high-profile welfare ministry than the foreign affairs portfolio.
Villy Søvndal stayed as foreign minister while Social Democrat Nick Hækkerup was effectively demoted to the combined Trade and Europe portfolio. And, yes, Henrik Sass Larsen entered government. Here we may ask if he was better placed as chairman of the parliamentary group but Henrik Dam Christensen is at least considered a safe pair of hands without ambitions of a major career.
