foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod (S) running for the Danish Parliament at the next elections.
he writes in a posting on Facebook.
When he was a part of the prime minister Mette Frederiksen (S) ministerhold, was Jeppe Kofod, member of the European Parliament, as he had just been re-elected.
He is therefore not a member of the Parliament now.
On Facebook writes Jeppe Kofod:
- After I became minister of foreign affairs, many wondered whether and how I would run for Parliament. And I have said nothing - that is, until now. It has been important for me to find the right circuit and the right partiforening.
The circle has the minister for foreign affairs found. He wants to make up in Copenhagen - specifically, the Socialists 9. the district Vesterbro and Kgs. Enghave.
- As you know, I am the bornholmer completely into the heart. Fortunately, the heart the two chambers. And while there is the island of Bornholm in the one, and then Copenhagen on the second, writes Jeppe Kofod.
- It is a circle with a proud historical heritage. Anchor circle. Districts that have formed the framework for the party's history. It requires, he writes and refers to the former social democratic prime minister Anker Jørgensen.
Even has Jeppe Kofod lived in copenhagen at Kongens Enghave and south Harbour of Copenhagen through a longer period of time.
Jeppe Kofod was a member of the European Parliament from 2014 to June 2019. Before that - from 1998 to 2014 - he was a member of the Danish Parliament and set on the island of Bornholm.
the Socialist circle in the district of Vesterbro and Kgs. Enghave hold annual general meeting on 18. november, where Jeppe Kofod therefore hope to be elected as folketingskandidat for the circuit.
