Icelandic Pirates asked to form Government

Almost a month after the most successful elections for any national Pirate Party, the Icelandic Pirate Party has been formally asked to try and form a Government after both the 2 largest parties failed to do so. They will now continue talks with a number of other parties in an effort to break the current deadlock to finding a willing coalition of parties to form a Government.

Pirate Party storms the Icelandic elections!

Following the Icelandic elections on Saturday the Pirate Party are confirmed as having come 3rd in the popular vote and look to have won 9 seats in the Althingi (Icelandic Parliament), an astonishing gain of 6 on their previous result.

This is by far the best result for a Pirate Party to a National legislature since the foundation of the movement nearly 10 years ago and shows that there is a political void to be filled with a technologically savvy party willing to embrace the future rather than fear it.

Mark Chapman, Pirate Party Spokesperson, said:
 

What is the Pirate Party?

Iceland's parliamentary elections could propel the radical centrist Pirate Party into global mainstream politics.
