Finals for the Independence Party League of Legends LAN party will be held today, and the general public can watch the competition live online.

Vísir reports that 60 people showed up at the conservatives’ election centre in Reykjavík yesterday to take part in the competition. These players were divided into 12 five-person teams to wage war against each other in the popular online game.

Finals are being held today, at 13:00 GMT. For those who cannot make it to Stórhöfði 17 to watch the playing on the big screen, you can check it out online.

The event has so far proven popular enough that the Independence Party is considering making this a yearly occasion.

For the unfamiliar, League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle arena. Released in 2009, it is today a critically-acclaimed game played by millions of people every day.
