Internal debates on Muslims in the Conservative People’s Party

The leader of the Conservative People’s Party, Lene Espersen, has not succeeded in creating internal consensus after the debate on a burqa ban. A group of seven dominant members challenges Lene Espersen regarding questions on integration. “We are an informal network of members of the Conservative People’s Party who doesn’t think we should compete with Danish People’s Party about who can disparage Muslims the most” Peter Norsk says. He is a member of the Conservative Party’s central board. The network is against the Conservative Party’s proposals on banning prayer halls at schools and that benefit fraud should lead to the loss of Danish citizenship.
