Opposition overtakes government in poll
The opposition parties would secure 22 of the 33 parliamentary seats if a general election were held now
Voter support for government party Fólkaflokkurin appears to have been cut in half following last month’s tumult in Parliament

The opposition parties would receive twice as many parliamentary seats as the government parties, according to a new poll commissioned by news portal in.fo.

Government party Fólkaflokkurin would go from eight to four parliamentary seats, going from 24.5 percent of the votes in the 2019 general election to 13.3 percent in the new poll.

Fellow government party Sambandsflokkurin would go from seven seats to five. The party received 20.3 percent of the votes in 2019, going down to 16.3 percent in the poll.

Miðflokkurin saw a slight drop in the poll, but the party retains both its seats.
