Naalakkersuisut can in brief be summarized to be made of a central administration and multiple other decentralized institutions. The central administration employs approximately 650 people, divided into 10 ministries, a directorate and 6 boards.

In June 21st 2009, Folketinget (the Danish Parliament) adopted the law “Act on Greenland Self-Government”. The Act is based on an agreement between Naalakkersuisut and the Danish Government, giving Greenland the authority to exercise legislative and executive power in the fields of the responsibilities taken.
