Main electoral priorities

We pledge to:

  • bring about a revolution in green energy – Iceland should be a leader in energy exchange by harnessing green domestic energy;

  • lower taxes – benefitting both households and businesses;

  • safeguard patients’ right to healthcare – a new healthcare insurance system putting people first, not the system itself;

  • pursue a digital revolution in health and welfare services;


  • conduct a full-scale review of the insurance system for senior citizens – income tax personal allowance to be raised immediately to ISK 200,000;

  • reorganise the social security system for the disabled – fostering financial independence and increasing employment opportunities;

  • foster a more dynamic and diverse economy – lower levies, simpler regulation and incentives for innovation;
