New party founded in reaction to Danish People’s Party’s heavy focus on immigrants

In January 2010 Christian H. Hansen left Danish People’s Party after 12 years as MP for the party. He was dissatisfied that the party kept the heavy focus on immigrants and used a lot of time discussing a burqa ban in times of financial crisis and while Denmark was facing big trouble with securing a global deal on climate change at COP 15. In 2002 Denmark implemented one of Europe’s strictest laws of immigration in order to limit the possibilities for immigrants to settle in Denmark. Christian H. Hansen thinks the goal is achieved and that it is now time to turn to other challenges. He has therefore founded the new political party ‘Fokus’ (which means focus). The party’s key issues are health care, energy and climate change issues, and animal well-being.
