The Democrats (Demokraatit) are a liberal and social-liberal, political party in Greenland. At the legislative elections on the fifteenth of November 2005, the party won 22.8% of the popular vote, and seven out of 31 seats, rising from 2002 totals of 15.6% of the popular vote and five out of 31 seats. In the June 2009 elections, the party became weaker, winning 4 seats and receiving 12.7% of the vote.

The party is sceptical towards further Greenlandic self-governance and independence, and is highly favoured by ethnic Danish voters in Greenland.
