The pro-independence Inuit Ataqatigiit party has won Greenland's parliamentary elections, ousting the social democratic Siumut party which has run the island for the past three decades.

This occurs a few weeks before a new self-rule status, passed in a 2008 referendum, goes into effect in the Danish semi-autonomous territory. The effect on the list of official public holidays in Greenland is not clear yet.
