Danish elections 1932, 1935, 1939, 1943.

Post by DavidFrankenberg » 05 Mar 2021 20:10

Hi,

i would like to know more about the election system in Denmark.


From 1926 till 1939 every 3 years the elections happened.

But why the next election only did happen 4 years later in 1939 ? then in 1943 ?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1932_Dani ... g_election
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1935_Dani ... g_election
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1939_Dani ... g_election
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1943_Dani ... g_election

What was the law concerning the frequency of the parliamentary elections ?

Thanks all.

Hi,

In Denmark the requirement is an election at least every 4th year, however the Prime Minister is free to call for an election before that. Every time we have an election a new 4 years period starts. In Denmark we can have a change of government without an election, if the sitting government looses a vote of confidence it has to resign, the sitting Prime Minister decides whether to call for an election or not. So as long as the government doesn't have a majority against it in the parliament it stays in power.

Hope this help.
Kind Regards

Ok, the maximum number of years between elections was 4.
Thank you
