Denmark's new Social Democratic prime minister on Thursday presented her team of 20 ministers which includes a former member of the European Parliament Jeppe Kofod as foreign minister and Nikolaj Wammen as finance minister.

Kofod has headed the Special Committee on Tax Crimes, Tax Evasion and Tax Avoidance in the parliament and been a vocal critic of a major money-laundering scandal at Danish lender Danske Bank. Denmark will become the third Nordic country this year to form a leftist government after Social Democratic leader Mette Frederiksen agreed terms for a one-party minority government earlier this week.
