The Faroe Islands elects on national level a legislature. The Faroese Parliament (Løgtingið in Faroese) has up to 33 members of parliament, elected for a four year term by proportional representation. The Faroe Islands have a multi-party system (disputing on independence and unionism as well as left and right), with numerous parties in which no one party often has a chance of gaining power alone, and parties must work with each other to form coalition governments.
