Three-Party Coalition to Continue

Katrín Jakobsdóttir, Chairperson of the Left-Green Party and current Prime Minister, met with President Guðni Th. Jóhannesson on Friday morning to advise him that the current three-party coalition plans to continue its cooperation for another term, RÚV reports.

The coalition, which was formed after much negotiation in 2017, is composed of the Left-Greens, the Independence Party, and the Progressive Party. The coalition signalled that it was considering continued collaboration after they maintained their parliamentary majority in September’s election. Katrín, Progressive Party Chairperson Sigurður Ingi Jóhannsson, and Independence Party Chairperson Bjarni Benediktsson have, however, been tight-lipped so far as to the content of their discussions.
