COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Greenland's ruling Siumut Party retained a slim majority in a snap election called after an expenses scandal, according to results issued early on Saturday, but its new leader Kim Kielsen will need to build a coalition to form a government.
Siumut, which has formed every single government in Greenland but one since 1979, won 34.3 percent of the vote. Opposition party Inuit Ataqatigiit, led by Sara Olsvig, won 33.2 percent, Greenland's official election website showed.
