No Danish referendum on EU’s Lisbon treaty – prime minister

COPENHAGEN (Thomson Financial) – Denmark will not hold any referendum on the EU’s Treaty of Lisbon on the EU constitution, but will ratify it through a parliamentary decision, the internet version of daily Jyllandsposten said, citing Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen.

Political parties ranging from the left-wing Enhedslisten to rightist Dansk Folkeparti have previously called for a referendum on the issue, but Fogh Rasmussen’s liberal party and the Social Democrats will have the necessary majority to ratify the treaty in parliament, the daily added.
