LI President Congratulates Icelandic Liberals on Formation of Government

The Progressive Party has experience of coalition politics and as the Prime Minister-elect, Sigmundur Gunnlaugsson, entered into Coalition talks, he said: “I feel good about this. There are of course many and big issues to discuss so this will take some time, but it's right to be optimistic, in the beginning at least”. The Liberal's return to government comes as the Socialist Party they replaced were unable to solve Iceland's national concerns, resulting in voters punishing the Socialists for imposing tough austerity measures and failing to tackle high levels of household debt.
