Political drama ahead of Greenland uranium vote

Internal disagreements ahead of today’s planned vote on whether to overturn a ban on mining uranium has led to one of Greenland’s governing parties resigning from the ruling coalition.

Despite Partii Inuit stepping down, the two remaining governing coalition parties, Siumut and Atassut, maintain a two-seat majority in the 31-seat legislature. It is uncertain how the changes will affect the outcome of the vote.

The government is in favour of repealing the ban, but parliament is evenly divided. – DR Nyhederne
