Þór has criticized the Icelandic government due to problems passing the constitutional bill despite the draft having been widely supported in last year’s referendum.

“Democratic reform promised in the lead-up to the elections has not been carried out,” Þór argued, adding that inequality in funding of parties still existed, while direct democracy was lacking.
