The new cabinet is led by Kim Kielsen, with four parties sharing power: three of them are pro-independence —Siumut, Partii Naleraq and Nunatta Qitornai— while the fourth one —Atassut— holds more ambiguous stances. The biggest one, Siumut, sees secession as a mid-term future scenario. The government has been formed this week.
In their deal, the four parties also undertake the commitment to continue drafting a Greenlandic Constitution, which could be the penultimate step before full independence. The agreement says that Greenland should “be leading” its own foreign and security policies. A new boost to mineral extraction policies —a controversial issue in Greenland— is also expected.
