Transport minister quits amid tunnel feud
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.
