Danish government upheaval

Denmark’s government has lost two of its ministers in just one morning, throwing national politics into disarray.

Tina Nedergaard, the Danish Minister of Education, has resigned her post this morning in an unexpected move made for “personal reasons”, as she worded it in a statement.

Nedergaard is a party compatriot of Birthe Ronn Hornbech, Minister of Immigration, who was herself sacked from the Danish cabinet this morning.

RUV reports that Hornbech has been in the spotlight since the United Nations Refugee Agency challenged the Danish government over why Denmark has for years gone against the UN by refusing citizenship applications from Palestinian children and young adults who were born in Denmark.
