1.2 billion dkk are up for negotiations with the other parties. The money will be spent on ideas that will get the other parties to vote for the finance law in the Parliament. The initial reaction from the other parties is that they want more money up for negotiation. 

  • Enhedslisten (Red-Green Alliance) aims to obtain free dental care for young people (18 to 25 years old) and better maternity conditions. Only the free dental care costs 700 million dkk, so chances to obtain that wish are slim. 
  • Venstre (Liberal Party) wants more funds invested in attracting workforce to Denmark and green transition. 
  • SF (Socialists), Enhedslisten and Radikale Venstre (Social Liberals) want to drop the “håndværkerfradraget” and “servicefradraget” (tax deductions for home improvements).

Other reactions: 

  • Danish Employers’ Association – “We need more people for the Danish companies now. The government needs to focus on this challenge first. How? Limit the number of public employees, hire more internationals and graduates, keep people longer in the labor market.”
  • United Trade Union Movement – “We need to raise the unemployment benefit rate by up to 4,000 dkk in the first three months of unemployment.”
