"We want to walk out of the refugee convention and stop all asylum processing in Denmark," Vermund told TV2 News.

The Danish People's Party is classified as "right-wing populist" by experts and generally stigmatized as "far-right" by the media community. During the latest elections, DF grabbed 21.1 percent of the Danish national parliamentary vote and 26.6 percent of the European parliamentary vote.
The New Conservatives was formed in 2015 by a group of breakaway members of the right-wing Conservative People's Party, who became disappointed with the party's "too lenient" stance on immigration.
