Åland held legislative elections on 19 October 2003. It elected the diet (Lagtinget), which has 30 members, elected for a four year term by proportional representation. Though the Åland Centre recorded its worst results to date in the elections, it regained its status as the largest party on Åland, beating out the Liberals for Åland by a mere 10 votes. The Åland Social Democrats had one of its best election results ever, doubling its representation in the Lagting.

Following the election the previous government formed by Åland Centre and the Liberals for Åland, was replaced by one comprising the Åland Centre, Liberals for Åland, Åland Social Democrats and Freeminded Co-operation parties.[1]
