Denmark: Rightwing coalition talks collapse; Liberal-led government likely
June 27 , 2015
Denmark is set to be ruled by the Liberals after talks aimed at forming a rightwing coalition failed.
The Liberals, who won less than 20% of the vote in the general election, will either have to depend on the support of the Social Democrats or get the backing of the Danish People’s party, an anti-immigrant front.
In either case, the new government will be the weakest in decades.
Liberal leader and former prime minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen said that he was confident of forming a government.
