Finally the day has come – the day we’ve all been waiting for: Election Day. Hooray!
Hooray for two reasons – Danish politicians have been campaigning for at least all of 2011 and we are tired and bored with them, and then for me personally I dream of a new government. I voted for the Red-Green Alliance which is about as left wing as you can get. Yes, you may call me a champagne socialist. I have always voted for the Red-Green Alliance which is a small party in Danish politics but this year curiously enough I am totally en vogue. It has become da bomb to vote for this young lady, Johanne Schmidt-Nielsen. And I like her a lot, but since she is quite certain to be elected I searched for another candidate from the same party and picked Jens Kjær Christensen because he seemed like an intelligent and sympathetic politician when I met him at a debate on Monday. He’s not very likely to get a seat in parliament, but my vote will not be lost – it will just go to the party.
It looks like the centre-left will win these elections marginally. But as long as they win I will not have to emigrate. So cross your fingers with me! And yay for democracy!
