The Denmark, the parliamentary elections is rolling on today. Opinion polls indicate a defeat for Prime Minister Lars L�kke Rasmussen's right-wing government and a victory for the centre-left opposition.


Yesterday four opinion poll results published, in which according to it, the government bloc, would get 83 or 84 seats in the Folketing, parliament. The Left Bloc would get 91 or 92 seats.

Should there be a left victory, it would means the Social Democrats' chairman Helle Thorning-Schmidt would become Denmark's first female Prime minister.

The most important issue during the election campaign has been the economy. The government has been accused of not properly managing the crisis and has deployed conservation measures, while the Left also advocates increased investment and tax hikes for the rich.
