Denmark’s Prime Minister Concedes Defeat


Denmark’s Prime Minister, Helle Thorning Schmidt, has accepted the parliamentary election and resigned as the Social Democratic Party leader after a record score for an anti-immigration party lifted the opposition night-wing bloc to victory.

“Tomorrow i will go to the Queen and tell her that the government is stepping down.

“Now it is up to Lars Lokke Rasmussen to try to form a government,” the Prime Minsiter said.

Lars Lokke Rasmussen is the main leader of the right-wing party known as Venstre.

The DF garnered 90 seats in the parliament against the Social Democratic’s 85 seats in the Parliamentary Election.

“The coming days will determine whether it will be possible to build a majority for a (government) platform that will lead Denmark down the right path,” said Ramussen

The results of the election represent a perplex, but yet very clear victory for the bloc led by former prime minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen, even though his Venstre party won fewer votes than the right-wing Danish People’s Party (DF) which is part of his alliance.
