Aleqa Hammond, who is 47 years old, looks set to become Greenland’s first female prime minister. At elections on March 12th her social democratic Siumut party won 42.8% of the vote, beating the prime minister, Kuupik Kleist, and his socialist Inuit Ataqatigiit party, which came in at 34%.

Mr Kleist lost over the issue of mining. Greenland’s mineral wealth—which includes rare earths, essential to making many electronic devices—is becoming accessible as the country’s ice cap melts.
...China may no longer be able to dominate the market for rare earths. A lot rests on a country that is four times the size of France but has a population of only 57,000.
