COPENHAGEN (Thomson Financial) – Denmark’s prime minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen confirmed in a speech today that parliamentary elections are scheduled for Nov 13.
In his address, Fogh Rasmussen said a call for early elections would eliminate speculation on the issue and thus facilitate the political process, including work on the ‘quality reform’ welfare sector programme.
Fogh Rasmussen said the incumbent coalition government made up of his own liberal party Venstre and the Conservative party, which is supported by Dansk Folkeparti, will not step down in connection with the election.
