"This should have bolstered David Gunnlaugsson’s popularity. But even before the “Panama papers” scandal, it was waning. The Pirate Party, a radical group formed in 2012 which campaigns for softer drugs laws and more electronic privacy, has steadily risen in the polls. Part of its appeal is that it is anti-establishment; the party does not have an official leader. A poll on April 6th put the Pirates’ support at 43%. If snap elections were called, the group would probably win or lead the next coalition. They do not seem strong on economic policy, unlike David Gunnlaugsson. Despite his current woes, history may judge his tenure kindly."

The Economist skriver att Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson kan få ett positivt eftermäle som statsminister tack vare ekonomiska framsteg.
