Political jockeying before election storm begins

With less than three months until local elections, Copenhagen’s Socialdemokraterne have found themselves looking replace one of their top candidates. Anne Vang, the deputy mayor for child and youth affairs, announced yesterday she was stepping down to take a position at business college Niels Brock. Mayor Frank Jensen said Jesper Christensen, the highest ranking Socialdemokrat serving on the council, would be a “natural choice” to replace Vang. Christensen, who is the only other member of Socialdemokraterne sitting on the child and youth committee, said he was considering his options. A number of other party members said they would be interested in the position. – Politiken
