Supreme Court Refuses to Reopen Election Case

gislitryggvason_talsmadur-neytendaThe request of Constitutional Assembly elect Gísli Tryggvason that the Supreme Court review its decision to invalidate the Constitutional Assembly election in November 2010 has been denied.

“It is the Supreme Court’s conclusion that your request does not include information, matters of dispute or legal argumentations that fulfill the conditions for reopening the case,” the rejection letter of five Supreme Court judges reads, Fréttabladid reports.

As for the public’s view, according to a new Capacent Gallup survey, 41 percent of respondents would like a Constitutional Assembly committee to be appointed, while 25 percent want to cancel the Constitutional Assembly.

Meanwhile, 20 percent of respondents want a new election to be held, 11 percent want to postpone the assembly and two percent want the government to choose representatives to the assembly.
