Iceland Government Talks to Continue for another Week

Prime Minister Jóhanna Sigurdardóttir said the government talks between her party, the Social Democrats, and the Left-Greens are going well and that they’re working on a joint agenda with full force. She hopes that they will conclude next weekend.

When asked about criticism of how long the discussions are taking, Sigurdardóttir pointed out that the Social Democrat-Left-Green coalition from before the elections on April 25 is still operating and working hard on the most pressing projects, Morgunbladid reports.

“We are planning to cooperate until the end of this term and therefore want to have solid ground under our feet,” Sigurdardóttir said in their defense. “Also, everyone knows that there is a gap between the two parties in regards to EU matters and no one should be surprised that we require some time to reach a conclusion on those matters.”

The PM stated it isn’t unusual for the government talks to take two to three weeks.
