The Parliament (Danish: Landstinget, lit. the land's-thing of Greenland, Greenlandic Inuit: Inatsisartut) is the unicameral legislature of Greenland. Established in 1876, it succeeded the Greenland Provincial Council (Grønlands Landsråd) that existed when Greenland was a colony of Denmark. The Parliament includes 31 members elected for four-year terms, and meets in Landstinget, an islet in central Godthåb.
