Danish Kingmaker Party Holds Line on EU Vote

A right-wing eurosceptic party that was one of the biggest winners in Denmark's parliamentary election stood by demands including a referendum on European Union membership as its price for joining any center-right coalition. The Danish People's Party made big gains to become the second largest party in a new parliament after Thursday's vote, behind the defeated center-left Social Democrats of caretaker Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt. The center-right bloc as a whole garnered more seats in parliament than her center-left alliance and the mainstream Liberals are expected to attempt to form a coalition government with former premier Lars Lokke Rasmussen regaining the top job.
