the Government and the Danish prime minister, Lars Løkke Rasmussen (V) the need to make Wednesday's launch of the reform to a positive story.
But it is easier said than done, for the lengthy prelude with several postponements of the reform has given critics of the closure of the five regional time to capture the agenda.
It assesses the political commentator Hans Engell.
If you overall look at it here as a blueprint for a future election, how is the government then?
- It will require a very great effort by Lars Løkke Rasmussen and his ministerhold, if they have to make it here for a vindersag, he says.
The overriding point of the reform has been the closure of the five regional, which among other things manages the hospital system.

Several media learned of the closure Tuesday. But it has been foreshadowed for a while and have not at least created the criticism in the Liberal party's support base.
Stephanie Lose (V), there are international architects in the Region of southern denmark and chairman of the Danish Regions, have led the way in the criticism, and she has been backed by, among others, fellow party member and former minister of defence, Søren Gade.
All five regionsrådsformænd, the other four is from the Social democrats, have come together in a common front against the killing of the regional councils.
Hans Engell considers that it will be very important for Lars Løkke Rasmussen to get the support from the local authorities.
They seem to have a greater role in health care, if the regional councils are, as expected, are being closed.
- It is very important that it does not become Loop alone, which must clear it.
- But that the total of the government offensively and can get convinced of the bourgeois mayors that the plan contains anything, and that you also get large groups of health professionals, not least doctors and nurses, with on the plans.
- It is an absolutely essential prerequisite if the government must make it a vindersag under a folketingsvalgkamp, says Hans Engell.
He estimates that Lars Løkke Rasmussen and the government will have to provide funds for the new led, that comes to arise by the closure of the regional councils.
Otherwise, can reform cost the government dearly, he thinks.
- If the whole of the municipal level is just as much against the regions, and if the employees in the health sector, experiencing it as a massive degradation of performance, then it will be a total tabersag.
- So the battle for public opinion the next few months will be decisive for whether it can be made into a vindersag, or if it will be a tabersag, says Hans Engell.
the Elections to the Parliament must be held no later than 17. June.
