Åland held legislative elections on 17 October 1999. It elected the diet (Lagtinget), which has 30 members, elected for a four year term by proportional representation. It was the first election contested by the Åland Centre in which it did not become the largest party, narrowly losing out to the Liberals for Åland.

The Åland Progress Group was a new party that was formed during the 1995 - 1999 session of the Lagting by a member of the Lagting who until that point had been a member of Freeminded Co-operation.

Following the election the previous government formed by Åland Centre, Freeminded Co-operation and one independent, was replaced by one comprising the Åland Centre, Freeminded Co-operation and the Non-aligned Coalition.[1] However following a motion of no confidence in March 2001 this was replaced by a government made up of the Åland Centre and Liberals for Åland.[1]
