The Danish General Election, June 18 2015

The 2015 election will be held very close to the end of the parliamentary term and it will be the first time since 1903 that Denmark holds a general election in June. As is usual in Denmark, the election campaign will be very short and intensive. Three issues so far have dominated the campaign: Job creation, healthcare and immigration.

Denmark after the Election

While the centre-left as expected won the Danish election on 15 September 2011, the victory turned out to be much narrower than predicted and the two main parties of the Left, the Social Democrats (S) and SF both lost votes compared with the 2007 election.

Denmark before the election

The 2011 election will differ from the previous elections in two important ways: First, there is a real likelihood for a change in government with Social Democratic leader Helle Thorning-Schmidt taking over as prime minister. Second, the campaign so far has been dominated by debates about the state of the economy while immigration and health care, the major themes of the three previous campaigns, have played only a minor role.
