Icelandic Movement – Living Country

Icelandic Movement – Living Country (Icelandic: Íslandshreyfingin – lifandi land) was a green[1] political party in Iceland founded by the reporter and environmentalist Ómar Ragnarsson and Sigurlín Margrét Sigurðardóttir in 2007[2] to contest the 2007 parliamentary election. It failed to clear the election threshold and did not enter the Alþingi due to a new electoral law which raised the threshold to 5%; the party would have gotten three seats according to the old electoral law. At the Social Democratic Alliance's party congress in late March 2009, the Icelandic Movement became part of the SDA.[3]
