The coalition stayed in power after the parliamentary elections in 2002 and brought one more political Party into the coalition and government.

In 2008, Hoydal assumed the position of Minister of Foreign Affairs. The government coalition between the Republican Party, the People's Party and the Independence Party agreed on a roadmap towards independence and initiated negotiations with the Government of Denmark. The negotiations, however, broke down and the Faroese coalition started going on a path towards greater autonomy by taking over the responsibility of matters taken care of by Denmark until then.
