Press release, Nuuk, December 7, 2014

The election is settled and a new Inatsisartut can reconvene. On behalf of the Inuit Circumpolar Council – Greenland (ICC-Greenland) I want to express my congratulations to all newly elected and re-elected members to Inatsisartut. A new coalition with Siumut, the Democrats and Atassut has been formed, and soon it will be made public who will take the seats in Nalakkersuisut. I would like to take this opportunity to express my congratulations to the coming Nalakkersuisut.

From ICC-Greenland we wish that Inatsisartut and Nalakkersuisut will continue its valuable cooperation with ICC-Greenland around, amongst others, the implementation of indigenous peoples’ rights, environment and culture as well as through the international work of the Arctic Council and the UN.

I look forward to further cooperation, not least in relation to parts of the coalition agreement which says that; the coalition will work to make the development of society and the strong standpoint as part of the world community larger, not only through Inatsisartut and Naalakkersuisut, but also by promoting cooperation with the participation of the entire civil society.

– This I have high expectations for, not least in the development of public participation in, inter alia, large scale projects, concludes the ICC-Greenland President Hjalmar Dahl in his congratulation.
