Transport minister quits amid tunnel feud
Henrik Old is standing down as the Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Labour
Henrik Old.
 
 

Transport minister Henrik Old today handed in his notice to the Prime Minister.

The minister’s letter reads:

“I must acknowledge that I do not have political backing for the Fámjin tunnel project, which I am ready to start working on. I am therefore handing in my notice.”

The resignation comes in the wake of a longstanding dispute with the Prime Minister, who has now decided to prioritise the Dalur tunnel project over the Fámjin project.
