Copenhagen's mayor is ready to stand again

Copenhagen's mayor Frank Jensen (S) says in an interview with Politiken on Tuesday that the party has invited him to take a trip more in manegen, and it is also his plan to run for the post of mayor for the fourth time in a row at the upcoming municipal elections in 2021.

- Yes, that is my plan. There are two years to get it realized. But it is my plan," says Frank Jensen to the newspaper.

If it is successful, and he is sitting in the period to 2026, the 58-year-old nordjyde and copenhagen really write itself into the existing record. Partifællerne Urban Hansen, David Merrick, and Jens Kramer Mikkelsen was overborgmestre in, respectively, 14, 13, and 15 years. From 2010 to 2026 is 16.

the Liberal party's employment and integrationsborgmester in Copenhagen, Cecilia Lonning-Skovgaard, see themselves as blue blok contender for Frank Jensen in the elections of 2021.

She greets his plan to stand welcome:

- It is fine in the relationship to provide something calm and ensure that all stakeholders at city hall and around city hall know what they have to relate to," she says.

Her ambition in the coming elections is to beat Frank Jensen.

- It is the ultimate ambition, but we are certainly up with the ambition to ensure significant civic progress. If not we can beat Frank then at least ensure that the axis, after the election, called P and the bourgeois as the benchmark block at city hall," says Cecilia Lonning-Skovgaard.

the Socialists pulled the 27,6 per cent. of votes, the home at kommunevalget in 2017. It was exactly ten percentage points lower than Ritt Bjerregaard listing in 2005.

Frank Jensen refers to, however, without hesitation During the sinking support among the Danish electorate as 'not satisfactory'.

- It requires that we work hard for the confidence of the people of copenhagen".
