DESCRIPTION OF CANDIDATE: 

Enhedslisten

DAN:

 

Enhedslisten – De Rød-Grønne, i daglig tale Enhedslisten, er et dansk socialistisk og grønt politisk parti, der er det mest venstreorienterede parti i Folketinget. Partiets formål er at arbejde for skabelsen af et socialistisk demokrati i Danmark og internationalt og at sikre samarbejde på venstrefløjen. Partiets målsætning er en afskaffelse af den private ejendomsret og et klasseløst samfund baseret på demokratisk socialisme, solidaritet og økologi. Partiets listebogstav er Ø. I Folketinget anvendes forkortelsen EL, i pressen sommetider også Enh., Enhl. eller EnL. Enhedslisten har som det eneste parti i Folketinget ingen formand, men ledes i stedet kollektivt, dog er Johanne Schmidt-Nielsen politisk ordfører og dermed de facto leder i Folketingsgruppen. Enhedslisten har ingen egentlig ungdomsorganisation, men henviser til Socialistisk UngdomsFront, som har en samarbejdsaftale med Enhedslisten. Enhedslisten blev dannet som et samarbejde mellem VS, DKP og Socialistisk Arbejderparti (SAP) i 1989. To år efter blev listen omdannet et egentligt parti.

ENG:

 

The Red-Green Alliance (Danish: Enhedslisten, literally The Unity List, abbreviated Enhl., Ø) is a socialist political party in Denmark.

 

The party was formed in 1989 as an electoral alliance by three left-wing parties, Left Socialists (VS), Communist Party of Denmark (DKP) and Socialist Workers Party (SAP). Originally the plan was to unite these parties alongside the Green Party (De Grønne), Common Course and Humanist to form a broad-based progressive movement, but this did not materialize. A fourth party, the Communist Workers Party (KAP), joined Enhedslisten in 1991. One year earlier the entrance of KAP was vetoed by DKP. KAP was dissolved in 1994.

 

Prior to the 2007 parliamentary election, the party enlisted Asmaa Abdol-Hamid, a candidate who identifies herself as a Muslim and a socialist. She is endorsed by some imams, opposed by others (including those in Hizb-ut-Tahrir), wears an Islamic headscarf and will not shake hands with men. These facts, and some of her statements regarding politics and religion, made her the target of much criticism from across the political spectrum. Prominent left wing figures also cited her candidacy as a reason for withdrawing their support from the party. An anti-religious network was created within the party with the stated goal of turning the party into a solely atheist party with a materialist–Marxist basis.

 

During the campaigning there was some speculation as to whether her candidacy would attract or repel voters. The results of the election were 2.2% for the party, down from 3.4% in the 2005 parliamentary elections. Although not elected, Abdol-Hamid maintained that she had attracted voters to the party. The four seats won by the party went to Frank Aaen, Johanne Schmidt-Nielsen, Line Barfod, and Per Clausen. Asmaa Abdol-Hamid was chosen as substitute for the frontrunner of Enhedslisten in the parliament.

 

In the 2011 parliamentary election, the party received 6.7% of the votes and went from 4 to 12 seats.

 

Leader: Collective leadership, but the party has a political spokesperson, Johanne Schmidt-Nielsen

Founded: 1989

Merger of: Left Socialists, Communist Party of Denmark, Socialist Workers Party, Communist Workers Party, independents

Youth wing: None, though cooperating with Socialist Youth Front

Ideology: Socialism, Anti-capitalism, Eco-socialism, Euroscepticism
