Denmark: Danes cast votes in neck-and-neck parliamentary race

Denmark, Copenhagen
June 18, 2015 at 09:28 GMT +00:00 · Published

Polling stations opened in Copenhagen as voting began for the Danish parliamentary elections, Thursday. Voters could be seen queuing outside Kildevaeldsskolen public school as they made their way inside to cast their ballots.

The election will determine whether Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt’s centre-left Social Democrats or whether the centre-right Venstre party of opposition leader Lars Loekke Rasmussen will rule the country.

The most recent polls show that the centre-right and centre-left parties are neck and neck. A Gallup poll conducted on Tuesday suggests that the centre-right party will win by 50.7 percent of the vote, while the centre-left will receive 49.2 percent. A reported fifth of voters remains undecided.

Over three million Danes are registered to vote in the election. Danes will be choosing from 799 candidates among 10 parties.
