The mayor claimed that he wanted to be a “positive part” of the process that has begun with the second wave of MeToo. “I want to go from being a part of the problem to being a part of the solution,” he said, adding that he would also limit his alcohol intake when attending future events.

All the parties in the Citizens’ Representation in Copenhagen – with the exception of the Social Democrats – are demanding an independent investigation into the accusations. They also include harassment incidents in 2012 and 2017 at social events that involved Jensen, according to the Jyllands-Posten daily.
