Løkke denies Ellemann’s strategy to regain the post of prime minister: ‘Not very hopeful’

Lars Løkke Rasmussen

It could take many, many years before the Liberal Party regains the post of prime minister, if Ellemann does not invest in cooperation with the Radicals, Løkke believes.

The Liberal Party’s former chairman and prime minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen is now taking the magazine by the mouth on the question of how his successor, Jakob Ellemann-Jensen, can conquer the post of prime minister from Mette Frederiksen.

Ellemann-Jensen has recently closed the door for a collaboration with the Radicals to gain power – this is directly contrary to Lars Løkke Rasmussen’s assessment of the road ahead of the Liberal Party.

– I just do not agree, states Lars Løkke Rasmussen.

Ellemann-Jensen’s strategy is “not very hopeful”, according to Lars Løkke Rasmussen.

He is publishing a new book on Monday, “On most things and most people”. Here he repeats his thoughts from the election campaign on a broad collaboration in the Folketing and a collaboration with the Radicals as crucial from the Liberal Party .

‘It’s about where the ministerial cars should go’

DR News has asked Lars Løkke Rasmussen to elaborate on his assessment of the Liberal Party’s possibilities.

Do you directly think that if you do not follow the strategy you outline here, then the way to regain the post of prime minister is many, many years into the future of the Liberal Party?

– Yes, that’s my assessment. It’s not just about getting into the ministerial cars, it’s also about deciding where the ministerial cars should go – in a figurative sense. If you commit to a project that is the lowest common ground between what unites the New Bourgeois, Danish People’s Party, Left, Conservative and Liberal Alliance, then it becomes a common ground that I would consider too uninteresting and which is not what Denmark needs, says Lars Løkke Rasmussen and adds:

– It is quite obvious that after the Liberal Party’s summer group meeting, the Liberal Party’s chairman has put the Liberal Party in a different strategic place than what I proposed – and in fact also what I myself sensed was the line he followed until the summer group meeting. But that’s not my choice. It is the Liberal Party’s leadership’s choice. I do not think it is particularly hopeful, says Lars Løkke Rasmussen.
