2022 parliamentary election collection: Enhedslisten warns the prime minister to stick to the left bloc

Enhedslist’s political rapporteur has called on not to go outside the red bloc in her efforts to form a new .

After the results, she admitted to DR that she finds it difficult to see any common ground between her party and Lars Løkke Rasmussen’s new party, the Moderates.

Tactical voting to the left
“We must turn up the heat in the upcoming negotiations, because they will be really decisive for our country,” she said.

To explain his party’s disappointing performance, where it went from 13 mandates in 2019 to nine, Villadsen suspects that many Liberal Bloc voters tactically switched from Enhedslisten to Alternativet to ensure that the latter ended up with representation.

Enhedslisten does not have a leader, so Villadsen is the closest they have come.


The Conservative leader insists he will not resign
Søren Pape Poulsen has insisted that he will not resign despite a disastrous campaign, less than 12 months after his party emerged victorious from the local and regional elections with 16 percent of the national vote. Despite polling on that share in early September, the Conservatives ended up with only 5.5 percent – ten seats. Nevertheless, compared to 2019, the Conservatives fell by only 1.1 percentage points and lost two mandates. Despite insistence from some quarters of the media that his divorce, announced on 14 September, would not affect his campaign, he lost immediate support from voters in the week that followed.

“We are still standing,” proclaims the DF leader after having had enough
Danish People’s Party leader last night quoted Elton John as saying to the media: “We stand still”. DF will only have four mandates, but it could have been much worse, with many experts tipping them to fall below the 2 percent threshold. In the end, the party got 2.6 percent of the vote. “DF has been around for 27 years and not every year has been like riding with the wind,” he said. “We will fight tirelessly for our important causes, regardless of how many mandates we have.”

Pia Kjærsgaard may lose her place in what used to be a stronghold
The figures reveal that the Danish People’s Party has taken another hammer blow in Zealand’s Storkreds, a traditional stronghold. In 2015, it won 134,195 in the constituency where founder Pia Kjærsgaard always stands, but that fell to 56,697 in 2019 and 22,354 this year, which gives it only one mandate. This means that either Kjærsgaard or deputy chairman René Christensen will lose their seats.

Dogfights threaten for the Liberals and Radicals, as their support has halved
Among the dogfights for seats that are currently underway in the Greater Copenhagen constituency, Venstre has celebrated one in which Jan E Jørgensen, Martin Geertsen and Linea Søgaard-Lidell are all in the hunt for the same seat. Not to be outdone, Radikale has a four-way battle between Samira Nawa, Klaus Bondam, Ruben Kidde and Carolina Magdalena Maier. Both parties have lost almost half of their mandates.

The Left is still optimistic that they can win the day
The Optimist award of the night will go to Venstre’s political spokesperson , who suggested to the leader of the Moderates, Lars Løkke Rasmussen, to join the blue bloc and forget about forming a government down the middle. And on top of that, she said that Liberal leader Jacob Ellemann-Jensen should still be prime minister.

Fourteen ran and two failed to win seats
Neither the Free Greens nor the Christian Democrats got enough votes to gain representation. The former previously had four MPs, and the latter none. In total, the parties got respectively 0.9 and 0.5 of the votes – a total of 50,265 votes. A further 4,241 votes were lost to spoiled or blank ballots or alternative candidates, meaning 54,506 votes were wasted in this election.

The biggest users on were the Liberal Alliance
The Liberal Alliance – which had an outstanding election and increased its number of mandates from four in 2019 to 14 with 7.9 percent of the vote – spent DKK 2.6 million on Facebook advertising during the campaign. That was the most of any batch. The funds were primarily used to promote the profiles of the party and its leader Alex Vansplagh. The Social Democrats and Conservatives were the next two biggest users with 1.13 and 1.09 million respectively. In last place, Frie Grønne spent just DKK 29,166, while absolutely nothing was spent on boosting the profile of the Moderates’ leader Lars Løkke Rasmussen.

Crucial times today ahead of the negotiations begin
Two crucial moments on the schedule today. At 11 p.m., Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen meets the Queen and announces the government’s resignation. And then between 11.00 and 12.30 the Publicist Club holds its traditional meetings with all the leaders of the parties that have won representation. The event will be held in Industriens Hus in Copenhagen and will be broadcast on DR.

Left no longer the most popular party in West
The Social Democrats eased past Venstre to become the most popular party in West Jutland with 25.3 percent of the vote, leaving their traditional opponents with 19.4 percent – ​​down from 29.8 percent in 2019. The Danish Democrats got 13, 6 percent of the vote.

goes with a red block
As expected, Greenland transferred its two mandates to the Red Block. The representatives are Aki-Mathilda Høegh-Dam from Siumut and Aaja Chemnitz from Ataqatigiits.

Lowest turnout since 1990
Turnout was the lowest since 1990, but only marginally below the number who voted in 2019. Only 84.1 percent of the 4,269,044 eligible voters participated, compared to 84.6 percent in 2019.
