The center-left coalition of Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen was the most voted in the parliamentary elections in Denmark, held this Tuesday (1st), but will depend on votes from Danish territories to secure a majority.

Frederiksen’s block conquered seats, while the center coalition -right got 60 chairs. The current prime minister’s center-left bloc has three seats from the Faroe Islands and Greenland, regions that traditionally vote left, to obtain the 64 required for the majority (the Danish Parliament has 179 chairs).

The results of Greenland (two seats) should be known on Wednesday (2).

The election in Denmark was scheduled for 2023, but was brought forward because Frederiksen’s own Social-Liberal Party threatened her with a vote of no confidence if she did not call elections.

The reason for the revolt was the killing of millions of mink, ferret-like animals, after it was discovered that they were reservoirs of the Covid virus-11 and that there was a risk of contamination of human beings.
