Denmark: Voters head for polling stations as 2019 general elections kick off

Voters were filmed queueing to cast their vote inside the Copenhagen City Hall on Wednesday, as the 2019 general elections got underway. Speaking to journalists outside the polling station, some of them expressed concerns about the reported far-right and anti-immigration stances of Mette Frederiksen's Social Democratic Party, who are suggested as the frontrunner in the elections. «The party has... Еще become something that I can't even recognise,» said Helena, a voter. «They don't want to help the workers of the world, which is very essential, because it descends from being a working class party, but since they are not interested in helping immigrants, refugees, they are not.» Another voter, Jan, added, «Yes, there is a tendency that they are moving more right, basically, actually. Especially about immigrants and so on.» A third voter, Nana, said, «I think that if they can collaborate with someone that is more left-wing, then we can get more and more lefty, and environmental, and socially focused.» Polls are suggesting Mette Frederiksen's Social Democratic Party to dominate the elections, setting her on course to become Denmark's youngest prime minister at 41. Frederiksen's rise has been mainly attributed to her adoption of traditionally far-right anti-immigration policies.
