Expectations: Uncertain among the blocs in the Danish elections

According to the polling station survey, it appears that the elections will be very even. The Red Bloc, led by Social Democratic Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, appears to get 85 seats. It looks like the blue side will get 73 mandates, but Prime Minister’s candidate Jakob Elleman Jensen’s Fenster party is expected to run a disastrous election and lose 19 of its 43 seats.

It is a historic election with two entirely new parties entering. The four parties that have been dominant for decades get less than half of the vote, says Drude Dallrup, a professor of political science.

There are many indications that the newly launched Center Party with party leader Lars Löck Rasmussen, who according to forecasts will get 17 seats, will be the leader of the wave.

The government announcement will be postponed

It may take some time for notification of the bloc that moderates will support, as does the parties that will be included in the government document.

Even the newly launched Alternativet got 3.9 percent of the vote according to expectations and appears poised to enter Parliament.

According to forecasts, the Danish People’s Party will receive 2.5 percent of the vote, which means that the party, which a few years ago was the second largest in Denmark, will narrowly hold.

In the elections, 179 states are at stake, four of which go to Greenland and the Faroe Islands (two mandates each). These mandates are not included in polling station surveys
