The party group of the Progressive Party has just declared its full support of Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson, the party leader. The meeting, which was called at a short notice, was almost four hours long and had been described by Vísir as a crisis meeting to discuss the leadership of the party.

Progressive Party MP Willum Þór Þórsson told Vísir it was still important to hold an election to choose a party leader and that he did not rule out voting for PM Sigurður Ingi Jóhannsson.

Sigurður Ingi recently announced he would not run for vice chair of the party, leading many to believe he was contemplating a run against Sigmundur Davíð for the party leadership.
