Iceland’s opposition party The Movement will seek a no confidence vote in the ruling minority government for its failure to bring about constitutional reform, party lawmaker Thor Saari told parliament, the Reykjavik-based assembly’s website said today.
Saari said he wants parliament to be suspended on Feb. 28 and a caretaker government composed of members of all of Iceland’s political parties to take over until parliamentary elections on April 13. He had earlier suggested the election could take place two weeks later than that. Parliament will vote on Saari’s motion on Feb. 26, according to Saari’s statement.
