Björt Framtíð Third Largest Party

Björt Framtíð Third Largest Party

Published January 18, 2013

New party Björt Framtíð is the third largest party in the country, while the conservatives gain support.
A new poll conducted by Fréttablaðið and Stöð 2 puts Björt Framtíð at 13%. This is a 0.7% increase from a Gallup poll conducted only two weeks previous.
The Independence Party remains the leading party in the country, taking a sharp rise from 36.3% earlier this month to 41%. The Social Democrats saw a slight dip, from 19.1% to 19%. The Leftist-Greens took the biggest hit, from 9.1% to 7%, decreasing hopes that the ruling coalition will be re-elected. The Progressives saw a smaller drop, from 13.1% to 12%.
Björt Framtíð was formed just over a year ago, and is the sister party of the Best Party, which leads the Reykjavík city council. It is also the only of the so-called “new parties” to poll above 5%.
