The Liberals (Venstre) will not impose age limits on ritual circumcision of boys.
A majority of the Congress rejected several proposals to bring change the party program to include that boys must reach a certain age and have given informed consent prior to ritual circumcision.
In Jewish tradition, circumcision happens when a boy is eight days old. The procedure is an important part of Jewish identity. Also among Muslims, circumcision is compulsory.
At their national congress two weeks ago, a similar proposal was withdrawn.
