Denmark's Conservative Prime Minister Poul Schluter began regrouping Thursday after voters punished his party in general elections but changed little in the complicated block politics of the legislature.

Despite major gains for the opposition Social Democrats and losses for most other parties, the electorate handed back a largely unchanged balance of socialist and non-socialist blocks in parliament.With 91 seats grouped in six non-socialist parties and 84 votes held by the two socialist parties, the most likely outcome of Wednesday's election was a reshuffled non-socialist coalition under Schluter's leadership.
