Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen has given a 2011 deadline for having a referendum concerning possible adoption of the euro currency.
Rasmussen made the announcement yesterday at his weekly press conference. But he added there were conditions that needed to be fulfilled in order to achieve that goal, including the resolution of problems surrounding the proposed introduction of a constitution covering EU member states.
‘We also need strong parliamentary support for the vote, and we don’t have that right now,’ said Rasmussen.
A new Jyllands-Posten/Rambøll poll showed that general support for the EU is declining in Denmark. This includes a majority wanting to retain the country’s current opt-outs - in place since the Edinburgh Agreement since 1993 - of which the euro is one.
Denmark’s other EU opt-outs, concerning common defence, justice and citizenship, are also no closer to being waived, according to the poll.
