Solidarity (Atassut, also translated as "Feeling of Community") is a liberal conservative unionist party[1] political party in Greenland and a partner of the Danish Venstre party.

The most pro-Danish among Greenland's parties,[3] Atassut later shifted to supporting home rule and autonomy, but without leaving the Kingdom of Denmark.[4] The party has moved from a traditional right-wing position towards later supporting the subsidisation of primary-sector business, just like the social-democratic Siumut party.[3]

Results[edit]

Originally one of the largest and influential political parties in Greenland, the Atassut has seen its share of the popular vote consistently decline since the mid-1990s. In the 2001 Folketing election, the party had lost its only representative to the Danish Parliament and as of the most recent national election, has been reduced to only 2 seats in the Greenlandic Parliament with its lowest share of the popular vote throughout its political history.

At the 2005 legislative elections, the party won 19.1% of the popular vote and six out of 31 seats. In the June 2009 snap election the party dropped to 10.9% of the vote, and lost 3 of its 6 seats. In the 2013 elections the party was reduced to two seats. in the 2014 elections the party maintained its two seats.

From the 2013 parliamentary election to the 2014 elections Atassut was a part of a coalition government, led by Siumut and also including the Inuit Party.
