A prominent master mixes now in the debate on whether the rotation mechanism in the Device list must be changed, so bl.a. Pernille Skipper can continue in Parliament after the next election.
Former mp and group chairman, Per Clausen announces itself as the opponent of a proposal to soften the scheme. Thus, he keeps firmly in, that the Skipper must stop on the Castle.
Per Clausen, for example, has expressed its opposition to the proposal in a post on the internal Unity-facebook group 'Chair on the red Island'. It informs he to Ekstra Bladet.
Thus he is opposed to the attitude among several of the party's current leader, who has openly backed up to relax the rules.
to Ekstra Bladet points out, Per Clausen, that the party in the past, been able to dish up with the solutions, when the rotation mechanism has sent profiles out of the Castle.
- I'm so old that I can remember, back then people with horror and dread talked about what we would do when Frank Aaen kept up. So there were people, who with horror and dread talked about what we should do, when Pernille Rosenkrantz-Theil held up. The discussion is not someone who can remember more.
- So can all remember the discussion, when Johanne Schmidt-Nielsen was to keep up. It was also an accident and a disaster. So now we are repeating it. I think it will turn out that there are also solutions on the here, says Per Clausen, who has been a part of Unity since the early beginnings in 1989.

the rotation system means that members may not be nominated for Parliament for more than seven consecutive years. Effectively ends many, however, to sit longer in the Parliament, as they are rotated out in the middle of a parliamentary term, but only in connection with the next election.
- most of us who will be affected by it, has been sitting in the Danish Parliament between 10 and 11 years. I think that is enough time, says Per Clausen.
- I fully acknowledge that the rotation mechanism puts a pressure on to ensure the replacement, succession, etc. It may provide some difficulties and challenges.
- But I think that the scheme sends a clear signal that we do not want people to grow fast in the Parliament and make it their livsindhold. It is an important difference between us and the other parties, says Per Clausen, who today is a member of the city council of Aalborg.
It is, however, not everyone in the party who agree with Per Clausen. It reveals a poll from the Unity list mps, as the DR has made.
Here is the equivalent of six out of the 13 that they support the proposal to extend the rotation mechanism in the party from seven to 11 years.
Transportordfører Henning Hyllested, who has made the proposal, said to DR.
- We don't get full value for the political talents, we develop. The period we have now, it is simply too short, he says.
Pernille Skipper even keep themselves from interfering in the discussion, she said to DR.
the Proposal will come up for a vote at the Unity annual meeting in the autumn.
