#AceFinanceNews says `Denmark PM Re-Shuffles Cabinet Over Goldman Sachs Deal’

Dong EnergyDenmark’s prime minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, announced a cabinet reshuffle on Monday after her coalition collapsed over a deal involving US investment bank Goldman Sachs, AFP said.

Six ministers from the centrist Socialist People’s Party left the government Thursday over the controversial sale of a stake in state-controlled utilities giant Dong Energy to a group of investors led by the bank.
