Denmark's new government.
On June 26, Denmark’s Social Democrats (SD) led by Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen formed a single-party minority government with the support of the Social Liberals, the Socialist People’s Party and the Red-Green Alliance, its three allies in the centre-left 'red bloc'. The government's plans primarily focus on ambitious climate reform, welfare reform and a broad continuation of Denmark’s strict immigration policy.
- Immigration will remain a top electoral concern for decades, with the immigrant population forecast to grow faster than the national one.
- In order to reclaim lost support, the anti-immigrant Danish People’s Party (DPP) will need to adopt a pro-environmental policy.
- Even if relations within the red bloc worsen, the parties that support the SD will be reluctant to collapse the government.
