Bornholm Regional Municipality, established January 2003 by the merger of Bornholm County with 5 municipalities, covers the entire island.These islands, which do not belong to a municipality or region, are administered by the Danish Ministry of Defence. This makes the dialect difficult to understand for some Danish speakers.However, Swedish speakers often consider Bornholmian to be easier to understand than standard Danish.Otherwise the merger would have to be abandoned altogether.The six municipal entities had 122 councillors (of which county clls were 15) and the new regional municipality would have 27 councillors from the start.
