For reasons that even he did not fully understand, Henrik Vindfeldt was thrown out of the Vegan Party in January.
But today, the co-founder is back in the game.
Critical issues at extraordinary general meeting
On Sunday at 11.00, there was a national emergency meeting at Zleep Hotel in Høje Taastrup to take up two important issues.
Should the exclusion of Vindfeldt, co-founder and former political rapporteur, be withdrawn first?
Second, was there confidence in the current national leadership, or should it resign?
The answers that came back
Vindfeldt was not invited to the meeting as he was technically no longer a member of the party.
Like everyone else, including the press, he had to wait to find out the result of the vote.
About 120 members out of the 150 at the meeting voted to reinstate him. The party also decided to oust the entire national leadership in light of the conflict.
It was, among other things, the party’s political spokesman, Michael Monberg, another co-founder, who had already promised to resign as de facto leader if Vindfeldt were to return.
What will happen now?
Vindfeldt has told DR that if he was asked to lead the party, he would.
Monberg is in doubt as to whether he will remain in the party.
The only thing both men still agree on is the need to get at least 3 percent of the public votes in the next parliamentary election, which must take place before June 2023, in order to achieve political representation in the Folketing.
