Denmark’s Socialist People’s Party said on Thursday it would continue to support the ruling coalition, even after it leaves it, meaning the government will not fall.
Party leader Annette Vilhelmsen confirmed TV reports that she was quitting the coalition following disagreement over a planned sale of a quarter of state-owned utility DONG Energy to a group of investors lead by Goldman Sachs.
But she told journalists she would continue to support Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt’s centre-left government from outside the coalition.
Vilhelmsen added she would step down as party chairman.
