Blacked out postkrise leads to skandaleanklager against the government

Transport minister has two weeks left of the year are not secured, to the danes ' letters brought out in the new year.

Transport minister Benny Engelbrecht (S) have not yet landed a financial agreement that ensures that the danes ' letters brought out the 1. January.

at the same time, the government has, according to several parties attempted to black out the crisis.

It writes the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten on Sunday.

First, the 27. november it went up for the Liberal party postordfører, Kristian Pihl Lorentzen, that the government is in secret, bypassing the political parties behind the postforliget in an attempt to make a acutely economical solution for PostNord.

In confidence had the Parliamentary Finance committee, suddenly the 27. november received a secret document. Here asked the government for support to provide PostNord, a three-digit million amount in the first half of 2020.

What stood out in any record could rapporteurs behind postforliget't get to know. Only the Finance committee had to see the contents, writes the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten.

nevertheless, according to the opposition talk about a "paradigm shift" in the whole approach to PostNord. Thus, it has not before been the idea that the independent company would have the grant from the treasury in order to bring out letters.

And it is not only the christmas holidays, which is now pushing the government in the unusual scenario. It also makes the prospect that the state's contract with PostNord on the universal service expires on 31. december.

This means, that the danes, therefore right now can't count on to get the letters out in every corner of Denmark from the 1. January 2020. Unless granted extra money very soon.

the Liberal party finansordfører, Troels Lund Poulsen, calling the case a "scandal".

- I must say that I have not experienced anything that is so poorly handled in the government's first months at all. It is simply an outright political scandal, he says to Jyllands-Posten.

He is backed by the Danish people's party postordfører, His Christian Skibby, while The Conservative, Radical and Liberal Alliance is also very critical of the process.

Benny Engelbrecht acknowledges that there should be found a solution in the past.

- It is absolutely true, and I have also said, also in Folketingssalen last Wednesday, that I would have seen that it had come earlier in time, but it has not been possible. It I take full responsibility for, he says to Jyllands-Posten.
