COPENHAGEN Oct 1 (Reuters) - Denmark's Prime Minster-elect Helle Thorning-Schmidt was expected to announce the formation of a three-party coalition government on Sunday after winning an election two weeks ago, Danish news agency Ritzau said on Saturday.

Social Democrat leader Thorning-Schmidt was expected to unveil a government consisting of her party, the Socialist People's Party and the Social Liberals at a news conference at 6 p.m. local time (1600 GMT) on Sunday, Ritzau said.

Thorning-Schmidt, whose "Red bloc" alliance unseated Liberal Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen in the Sept. 15 ballot, would present the new ministers on Monday, Ritzau said.
