Parties

Election posters at Vesterbro in Copenhagen.

All Danish parties which were represented in the European Parliament announced they would take part in the election. These were the Social Democrats, Venstre (Liberal Party), Conservative People's Party, June Movement, Socialist People's Party, Danish People's Party, Social Liberal Party and the People's Movement against the EU.

As in the last election, several electoral coalitions were agreed to before the vote. The Social Democrats sided with the Social Liberal Party and the Socialist People's Party, while Venstre teamed up with the Conservative People's Party and Liberal Alliance. EU-critics JuniBevægelsen and the People's Movement against the EU were also in a coalition, meaning that the only party not in a coalition was the Danish People's Party.[1]

Under the Danish electoral code for European Parliament elections, parties that surpassed the 2 % threshold in the last Folketing elections may also take part in the European elections, should they wish so.
