Iceland Opposition Party Seeks No Confidence Vote, Saari Says

March 6 (Bloomberg) -- Iceland’s opposition party “The Movement” will seek a no confidence vote in the ruling minority government for its failure to bring about constitutional reform, party lawmaker Thor Saari told parliament today.

Saari said he wants the parliament to discuss the motion tomorrow, according to a transcript of his comments on the Reykjavik-based assembly’s website. Should the motion be successful Saari wants a caretaker government composed of members of all of Iceland’s political parties to take over until parliamentary elections on April 27.

This is the second time this year that Saari has asked for a no confidence vote. He withdrew a first one submitted on Feb. 20 because of a technical flaw, according to a Feb. 21 statement.
