A street or plaza will be named after Anker Jørgensen within a year
The group responsible for naming streets and public places in Copenhagen, Københavns Kommunes Vejnavnenævn (KKV), already has deceased PM Anker Jørgensen on its radar.
Lars Weiss, the group leader for Socialdemokraterne in Copenhagen who is a member of the KKV four-person naming committee, said Jørgensen’s immortalisation will come sooner rather than later.
“We have already talked about the need to find a street or a place that can carry Anker Jørgensen’s name,” Weiss told Ekstra Bladet.
Weiss said he felt a street in the Sydhavnen neighbourhood where Jørgensen lived for many years would be the most obvious choice.
The rules for street-naming say that at least one year must pass after a person’s death before a street or public space can be named after them.
Residents in Sydhavn have already set up a Facebook page advocating that the community’s Mozart’s Square be rebaptised Anker’s Square.

Weiss said that he will take that proposal under consideration.
