Neither the Reform Party nor Bright Future, two of the three parties making up the Icelandic coalition government, would win a seat in Alþingi, the Icelandic parliament, were elections to be held today, according to the latest MMR poll, RÚV reports. Five percent support is needed for a party to be represented in Alþingi. The Reform Party measures at 4.7 percent support and Bright Future at 2.4 percent. The Independence Party, the third member of the coalition, remains the country’s most popular party, with 29.3 percent support, one percent higher than in the last poll.

Approximately 34 percent of Icelanders support the government, which is nearly the same ratio as in the last poll conducted in June.

The People’s Party, which currently does not have any seat in parliament, has seen a rise in popularity, now enjoying 6.1 percent support, compared to 2.8 percent when last measured.

The Left-Greens enjoy 20.4 percent support, a decrease from the previous poll.

Support for the Pirate Party remains stable, measuring at 13.3 percent.

The Social Democratic Alliance measures at 10.6 percent and the Progressive Party at 9.6 percent.

The poll was conducted between July 18-21 with 909 participants.
