DENMARK should ban headscarves in schools, have stricter controls on migrants and leave the European Union, according to the leader of the country’s newest far-right party.
Pernille Vermund plans to overhaul Danish politics and provide a new challenge to the government in local elections later this year.
The 41-year-old leader of Nye Borgerlige or ‘The New Right’ has called for stricter controls on migrants and refugees and wants a ban on headscarves in schools and public institutions.
Ms Vermund wants to limit Danish citizenship to people who “contribute positively” to society and have a job and only give asylum to refugees from the UN’s refugee agency’s resettlement scheme.
She said: “Those who don’t have the ability to provide for themselves, we have to ask them to find another place to stay.”
