No Vote of No Confidence on Icelandic Government

thorsaari_althingiMP for opposition party The Movement Þór Saari (pictured) has retracted his proposal for a vote of no confidence on the ruling minority government.

Þór retracted the proposal because the vote was going to be held today rather than after the minimum 48 hours which must usually pass according to parliamentary procedure, ruv.is reports.

Yesterday, Þór called for the suspension of parliament on February 28 and for a caretaker government with representatives of all parties to govern until the upcoming election on April 27 because of problems passing the constitutional bill despite the draft having been widely supported in last year’s referendum.

Þór reiterated in a statement today his dissatisfaction on the lack of progress on getting the constitutional bill passed.
