Denmark's new prime minister unveils liberal cabinet

(MENAFN - Saudi Press Agency) Denmark's new liberal prime minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen unveiled his cabinet on Sunday, dpa reported.

The deputy chairman of Rasmussen's Venstre party, Kristian Jensen, is
the new foreign minister, while the new finance minister is Claus
Hjort Frederiksen.

Rasmussen was not able to forge a coalition deal with the other
centre-right parties that managed to get members elected into the
179-seat parliament in the June 18 polls, so he announced on Saturday
that Venstre would govern alone.

Venstre came out on top after the polls despite only achieving 19.5
per cent of the total vote, giving the party 34 seats, behind the
populist Danish People's Party on 37 and the outgoing Social
Democrats with 47 seats.
