Here is a running commentary on Twitter by the British political reporter, Lewis Goodall.
And even though he has a very enthusiastic view on how it was covered and what happened here in DK, you can filter that away and see how a typical election night is here in DK.
His political conclusions are IMO correct.

Because it is otherwise correct. The exit poll is out at 20.00.
The final results are in around midnight.
There is running coverage from all the parties, with interviews and comments, while more results come in. Interspersed with comments from political commentators, including two former PM.
The speeches to the parties by each of the party leaders is shown live and at the end all the party leaders meet for the traditional debate late in the evening.
Here they basically debate: What now?

Today the Royal Investigator, the head of the Social Democrats, Mette Frederiksen, has concluded her negotiations with her supporting parties.

That means she will seek an audience with QMII (and Frederik) informing the Majesty that she now has a majority behind her as the next Prime Minister and that she as a consequence will be able to form a minority government, consisting of the Social Democrats. - Supported by three other parties, who have all agreed on a political basis for the new government.

QMII will then ask Mette Frederiksen to form a government.
And tomorrow Mette Frederiksen will again seek an audience with QMII, informing her that she now has a government, and whether the Majesty will approve the ministers Mette Frederiksen has put forward.
QMII will of course do that.

Earlier today QMII asked the acting Prime Minister, Lars Løkke, to come and see her. QMII basically thanked him for manning the fort, while the negotiations conducted by the Royal Investigator went on.

He will also be called to an audience tomorrow along with the ministers of the former government.
QMII will accept their resignation and thank them for their service.

The formal handover will take place in the individual ministries tomorow afternoon, when all have seen the Queen.

Looking at the new government within a DRF-context, the new ministers I think we can assume the DRF will have most to do with are Jeppe Kofod, the Minister for Foreign Affairs; Rasmus Prehn, the Minister for Development Cooperation; as well as Joy Mogensen, the Minister for Culture and Church. Occasionally also Magnus Heunicke, Minister for Health and Elderly Affairs; Lea Wermelin, Minister for Environment; and Dan Jørgensen, Minister for Climate Affairs and Energy Supply.

Apparently today is the first time ever that the new minister of Foreigners and Integration, Mattias Tesfaye is wearing a tie.
