Rebel Left-Green Has New Party in the Making

By Iceland Review

liljamosesdottir_althingiLilja Mósesdóttir, an MP who recently left the Left-Green Movement’s parliamentary party due to disagreement with the Left-Green-Social Democrat coalition and is now acting independently, is considering founding a new political party.

Mósesdóttir and two other Left-Greens who have also abandoned the coalition will formally establish a new parliamentary party next week, reports.

They decided to do so after Dadason declared he would not work with the government anymore because of its position on the European Union and that he would not support the government against the vote of no confidence on Wednesday.

Mósesdóttir explained that a new parliamentary party will help them gain influence in parliament given that as independent MPs, they are not currently given access to information on the parliament’s program, among other issues.

She added it is important that the trio decide whether they have a future within the Left-Green Movement before the party’s national meeting in the autumn and that she is now looking into the conditions for founding a new political party that could rival the Left-Greens in the next parliamentary elections.
