MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt resigned on Friday after conceding her party’s defeat in the country’s general election.
“I was Denmark's first female prime minister. But I will not be the last,” Thorning-Schmidt was quoted as saying by Danish broadcaster DR.
Denmark’s center-left government was beat by center-right opposition block in the Thursday general election.
The opposition bloc received 90 out of 175 mandates.
