Denmark’s centre-proper prime minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen has referred to as for parliamentary elections on five June five, 12 days just before Rasmussen’s term is due to expire on the 17th.

Rasmussen is campaigning for his reelection on a platform of continuity by underscoring his record on climate modify and the migration crisis.

The centre-left opposition alliance is major the newest typical of polls with 54.eight%, as assistance for the nationalist and anti-immigration Danish People’s Celebration is waning from 21% in 2015 to projections in the area of 13-to-14%. All round, the coalition of the proper is now projected to acquire up to 44-to-46%.

The People’s Celebration continues to lead more than the additional centrist Liberals of prime minister Rasmussen, whose celebration polls at 18,five-19%.

The Social Democrat leader Mette Frederiksen has followed the lead of her predecessor Helle Thorning-Schmidt on immigration, who moved the Social Democrats closer to the Danish People’s celebration and even supported the controversial measure of stripping asylum seekers of jewellery and money.

Their campaign is now focused on green policies and shielding Denmark’s welfare from cuts, in spite of an ageing population and somewhat low levels of financial development, stubbornly low inflation, and damaging interest prices.
