Recently, the press - through the existing offentlighedslov - access to some very shocking figures on the number of unemployed who risk losing their unemployment benefits up to the summer holidays - but the government did not want to disclose - to the great detriment of the public debate. In this way, an open offentlighedslov (ie current) is used to create a society where everyone can participate in the debate because they have access to facts about the cases.
On the other hand - with the new and much more closed offentlighedslov - this would not be possible. We would never know these numbers - and the secrets - a government wanted to keep for themselves. The law will immediately be used to hide such discussions and information. And it is only the politicians and their officials - and their spin doctors - decide - and thus control - what we know and can talk about.
The separation of powers in Denmark, tripartition of power
In Denmark at the state level a division between the legislature (in principle parliament and the king of association), the executive (the king, that is, the government and the subsidiary bodies) and the judiciary (the courts). It is worth noting that the executive is part of the legislature and the government in principle can block the bill. This did not quite live up to Montesquieu's ideal of strict separation. However, Danish governments generally been either multi-party governments or minority governments (and usually both), which means that the legislature still has the ability to control the executive. Often, control passed in that a majority bypassing the government directs the government to pursue a specific policy (footnote policy is an example), or more far-reaching through pressure agent adjournment (also called censure), according to which a sitting minister (including the Prime Minister) can never be seated against a majority in the Folketing'( where all the politicians are in) desire.
Judges in Denmark appointed independently of the executive and legislative branches. As a separate state power is very important for the courts that judges are both personally and materially independent. This ensured fundamentally Constitution § 64: The judges have in their vocation only to abide by the law. They can not be dismissed except by judgment, nor transferred against their will, except in such cases where a rearrangement of justice takes place. However, the judge who has completed his 65th years, dismissed, but without loss of income up to the time at which he should be dismissed on grounds of age. Judges may only be dismissed by judgment, ie. of their colleagues at the Special Court of Final Appeal.
Press sometimes referred to as the fourth Power of Denmark, the press, leads an informal review of the first three and can have a major impact on public attitudes about individual cases or the government in general. A necessary condition for a free press, freedom of expression.
