Electoral system[edit | edit source]

The Kingdom of Greenland has seven seats allocated to it in the American Parliament and elections occur in three single-member constituencies and one four-member constituency. In the three single-member regions, Members of the American Parliament (MAPs) are elected using proportional representation. In the Godthåb constituency, party-list proportional representation is used to elect the four MAPs assigned for the region.
