Majority wants to vote on heavy industry

According to a new opinion poll from the polling organization Gallup Iceland, 61 percent of participants want further ideas about heavy industry to be voted on in a national election.

Two thirds of female participants would like a national election on heavy industry projects, but only half of male participants agreed to the idea, as ruv.is reports.

Seven to eight of every ten voters ages 18 to 35 would like to vote on further projects in heavy industry, but only five to six of every ten voters ages 35 to 75 believe the matter should be voted on.

Those who support the government are rather inclined to not wanting a national election, while those who support the opposition parties rather support the idea of a national election on heavy industry projects.

The poll was undertaken via telephone between April 3 and 9 – 940 individuals from all over the country between ages 18 and 75 were approached and 62 percent participated in the poll.
