The World : Dane to Form New Cabinet

September 10, 1987

Denmark's Conservative Prime Minister Poul Schlueter, who resigned after a setback in Tuesday's general election, was asked by Queen Margrethe II to form a new government. After meeting with the queen and leaders of Denmark's nine political parties, Schlueter announced that leaders of six parties, representing 90 of Parliament's 179 seats, supported him, while a lesser number favored his rival, Social Democratic leader and former Prime Minister Ankers Jorgensen. The prime minister had the same narrow majority in the outgoing Parliament. Schlueter, 58, said he hopes to present a new coalition Cabinet today.
