The structure and organisation of RV is similar to that of other "old" parties. The national conference elects members of the executive and approves programmes. The executive follows the familiar pattern of a few representatives of the national conference and a majority of ex-officio members from the Folketing group, Radical Youth, the Radical press and the local and regional party organisations."
