dbo:abstract
  • Inuit Ataqatigiit (Greenlandic for "Community of the People") is a democratic socialist, separatist political party in Greenland striving to make Greenland an independent state. The party, founded in 1976, was born out of the increased youth radicalism in Denmark during the 1970s. Formerly in favour of a socialist economy the party has gradually moved towards a capitalist approach supporting a market economy and privatisation. It believes that an independent Greenland should be competitive. In 1982, the party successfully campaigned in a national referendum for Greenland to leave the European Economic Community (EEC). Inuit Ataqatigiit is represented in the Folketing (the Danish parliament) by Sara Olsvig, who is also the leader of the party. Inuit Ataqatigiit made a major electoral breakthrough in the 2009 Greenlandic parliamentary election. Making gains from the 2005 Greenlandic parliamentary election, it doubled its total number of seats in the Parliament from 7 to 14 seats out of 31 – just two seats short of a majority – and nearly doubled its total vote share from 22.4% to 43.7%. It supplanted both its coalition partners, shifting the Forward party from first to second and the Democrats party from second to third. At the 2014 elections the party obtained 11 members in the Greenlandic parliament. (en)
