Denmark’s Premier Pledges Not to Put Euro Opt-Out to Vote
(Bloomberg) -- Denmark will avoid a new vote on joining the euro even after the Nordic country with an overwhelming majority decided to drop its opt-out on the European Union’s defense pact, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said.
The premier, speaking Wednesday after two-thirds of Danes had backed joining the military cooperation, said there would be no more votes on Denmark’s other EU opt-outs, which also include the bloc’s cooperation on justice affairs.

“I won’t recommend” new referenda on opt-outs, Frederiksen said at the Copenhagen-based parliament. “There are still many people in our country opposing the EU.”
Danes last rejected joining the euro in a 2000 referendum. The country pegs its krone to the European currency in a tight band.
