Immigration debate in focus as election nears
by Sören Billing
The anti-immigration Danish People's Party is poised to have a strong election but activists are working to counter that by encouraging more minorities to turn out to vote on Thursday.
As Thursday's general election quickly approaches, much of the political discussion has centred around the place of foreigners in Danish society.
Public opinion polls suggest almost one in five Danes, or some 18 percent, will vote for the far-right Danish People's Party (DF), up from 12.3 percent in the previous 2011 election, with immigration cited as one of the top three campaign issues behind the economy and the country's cradle-to-grave welfare state.
