Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s Social Democrats have become the strongest force in Denmark’s elections. She could rule again. But ex-Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen received the most attention. He could still play an important role.
That was a different choice in Denmark! It was an extremely close race right up to the end. A nail biting photo finish finale.
Normally, in the parliamentary elections in Germany’s northern neighbor, decisions are always made between two blocks: red and blue. Anyone who can win at least 90 mandates – in Denmark they say “count to 90” – has the best chance of becoming head of government.
This time it was a little different. Because neither the red, left-wing, nor the blue, bourgeois block could reach 90. At the end of the day, the North Atlantic mandates will tip the scales.
