Right Green Chairman Not Eligible To Run

Right Green Chairman Not Eligible To Run

Published April 4, 2013

It has been announced that Chairman of the Right Green party, Guðmundur Franklín Jónsson, is not eligible to be included on the electoral roll and, therefore, cannot run in the 27 April elections.
Guðmundur had resided abroad for an extended period of time and applied to transfer his official residence back to Iceland just today, RÚV reports. However, the deadline for a hopeful candidate to establish their legal residence in Iceland had already passed on 23 March.
In an interview with RÚV Guðmundur said that he had not thought about there being a deadline and thought that changing his domicile would be sufficient to ensure his eligibility to run. He is working with his lawyer to appeal the decision about his eligibility but is, in the meanwhile, seeking a replacement to run in the Southwest constituency, which encompasses many of the municipalities surrounding Reykjavík, including Kópavogur, Garðabær, Hafnarfjörður, Mosfellsbær, and Seltjarnarnes.
