Jakob Ellemann-Jensen, the deputy prime minister and minister of the economy of Denmark, said on Monday that he would quit politics immediately after taking a six-month stress-related leave.

According to Ellemann-Jensen, Troels Lund Poulsen, the defense minister, will take over as acting deputy prime minister and minister of the economy.

“I would like to make it clear that we will continue our work to implement the government platform because I believe that the Liberal Party should continue in government,” Lund Poulsen stated.

Since joining a rare bipartisan administration focused on reform in December of last year with the Social Democratic Party and the Moderates, Ellemann-Jensen’s Liberal Party has lagged in surveys.

At a gathering the following month, the Liberal Party will choose a new leader.

Attention will focus on the decisions the administration and Venstre took in the upcoming weeks as Denmark adjusts to this unexpected political event. Both the general public and outside observers will be keenly watching how the country’s leadership develops in the future and how it will affect important policies.

Denmark is at a turning point due to the retirement of Deputy Prime Minister Kasper Ellemann Jensen during this crucial political transition. Currently, the country must navigate a new political environment that might determine the nation’s future for years to come.
