Denmark’s Social Democratic Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, who narrowly won Tuesday’s general election, handed in her resignation on Wednesday and said she would begin exploring a coalition across the political middle.

The prime minister had campaigned on the need for a broad coalition across the traditional left-right divide, arguing that unity is needed at a time of international uncertainty.

The talks are expected to be lengthy as both friends and foes of Frederiksen have expressed scepticism about such a coalition, making the outcome uncertain.
