Kristian Jensen (born May 21, 1971) is a Danish politician who has been Minister for Foreign Affairs of Denmark since 2015. He is a spokesperson for the Liberal party Venstre. He was the Minister for Taxation from 2004 to 2010 and has been a member of parliament (Folketinget) since March 11, 1998. During his time as Tax Minister, Kristian Jensen was a keen proponent of a "tax freeze."
Jensen was the Venstre party's spokesman on information technology and sports from 1998 to 2001 and became its spokesman on finance policy, as well as Vice-Chairman of the Financial Affairs Committee, in 2001.
At the liberal party's congress on 17 May 2009, Kristian Jensen was elected as vice president of the liberal party, without any other candidates running for the post.
If Venstre lost the 2015 election, then Kristian Jensen was considered very likely to be the next leader of the political party. Unlike the current leader of Venstre, who is rated as very untrustworthy in polls, there are no controversies associated with Kristian Jensen. In the event, Venstre was able to form a government, with Jensen becoming Minister of Foreign Affairs on 28 June 2015.
