Denmark's incoming centre-right government ran into controversy Saturday over its plans to cut tax rates for high earners after it emerged the issue had caused the failure of coalition talks.

Lars Lokke Rasmussen, the leader of the Venstre party, said Friday his party would govern alone after coalition talks with the anti-immigration Danish People's Party (DPP) broke down.

On Saturday, Danish media reported that one of the main reasons for the failure of the talks was Rasmussen's wish to slash taxes on the highest earners from the current 15 percent to 10 percent.

The DPP, which became the second-biggest political force in the June 18 general election, said it could not accept the proposal after it had campaigned for increased pensions and healthcare credits.

"We are not interested in a reduction in the top level of income tax and we will have nothing to do with it," the party's vice-president Soren Espersen told the online version of the Politiken newspaper.

"We are not satisfied with what is in the government manifesto and therefore Lars Lokke Rasmussen is now sailing in very choppy waters," Espersen said.

The outgoing social-democrat finance minister, Bjarne Corydon, said the government-to-be was displaying "worrying signs".

Rasmussen is due to have an audience with Queen Margrethe II on Sunday to formally become prime minister, succeeding Helle Thorning-Schmidt.

While minority governments are common in Denmark, a Venstre government would be extremely weak, as it would have just 34 lawmakers in the 179-seat parliament.

In a similar situation in 1973, a Venstre administration with just 22 seats in parliament only lasted 14 months before collapsing and giving way to a left-wing government.
