Exit polls in Denmark show the Red bloc is set to win the election after polling stations closed at 8 pm, Euronews reports.
The Social Democrat party is projected to win 25.3% of the vote with its left-wing coalition expected to win 90 seats in the Danish parliament.
The election, Denmark’s second in a fortnight, was expected to see a huge swing to the left with the red block opposition to the current government expected to make big gains.
It comes after the European Parliament elections saw a big drop in support for the far-right Danish People’s Party (DPP) who won the EU elections in 2014 with 26.6% of the vote.
According to the CEST, Ritzau survey turnout was up on last time with 74.6% people estimated to have turned out to vote compared with 70.3% in 2015.
