Running on a ticket that promised a new polar bear for the local zoo, free towels at all the city swimming pools and a Disney-theme park near the airport, the grassroots party became the largest party in the municipal elections by winning 6 out of the 15 seats available on the city council. Gnarr's party won the majority of the vote, but failed to win the majority and so entered into a coalition government with the Social Democrats.
