Greenland, an autonomous province of Denmark, is to elect its parliament on March 12 in a vote that may be decided by the question of how to manage the country’s natural resources.

How should the country’s mineral wealth be used, and how should foreign companies be taxed? The daily continues to ask "Should we continue to impose limits on uranium extraction?" The other major issue is the country’s relationship with Denmark, its former colonial ruler, which still holds sway on diplomatic and financial questions as well as security.

Polls predict a close-fought contest between the socialists of Inuit Ataqatigiit (Community of the People in Greenlandic), and the opposition led by the social democratic party, Siumut (Forward).
