Marianne Jelved

Marianne Bruus Jelved née Hirsbro (born 5 September 1943) is a Danish politician and former political leader of the Danish Social Liberal Party (Radikale Venstre). Jelved is educated as a teacher and has a Master's degree in education from the Danish School of Education. She worked as a primary school teacher for 22 years.

She was elected to the Parliament of Denmark in 1987 for the Danish Social Liberal Party (Radikale Venstre). In 1990 she became political leader of the party. During the 1990s she served as Minister of Economic Affairs (1993–2001) and Minister for Nordic Cooperation (1994–2001) in two Social Democratic governments. In 2007 MP Naser Khader and MEP Anders Samuelsen broke away from the party in protest to form the New Alliance, today known as Liberal Alliance.[1] Jelved resigned as political leader in 2007 following a drop in opinion polls and criticism from within the party.[2][3] She remained an MP, serving as Minister of Culture from 2012–2015[4] and Minister of Ecclesiastical Affairs from 2014–2015 in Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt's three-way government coalition. As of the 2019 elections, she is the oldest member of parliament.[5]
