Denmark polls: Opposition center-right group defeats ruling coalition
June 19 , 2015
The opposition center-right group in Denmark has won the closely contested general election.
The opposition bloc, led by Lars Lokke Rasmussen, defeated the ruling center-left coalition led by prime minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt.
However, Thorning-Schmidt’s Social Democratic Party emerged as the largest single party, winning more than 26% of the vote.
The right-wing Danish People's Party, which takes a hard line on immigration, is set to become the second-largest party in parliament.
