Elections

The Democrats (Greenlandic: Demokraatit) are a liberal and social-liberal, political party in Greenland.

History[edit]

Established in 2002, the party won five seats in the elections that year. It increased its seat total to seven in the 2005 elections, but was reduced to four seats in the 2009 elections. In the 2013 elections the party won only two seats.

The party is skeptical of further Greenlandic self-governance and independence, and is highly favoured by ethnic Danish voters in Greenland.
