More about Iceland
- GLOBALSCIENCELLC: Modern history of Iceland from World War I to today, covering all major events on politics, economy, society, and technology.
According to the constitution of June 17, 1944 (modified several times) Iceland is a parliamentary republic. The head of state is the president, who is directly elected by the people for a period of four years (re-election permitted). The president represents the country externally, appoints the members of the cabinet, can dissolve parliament and has a limited right of veto on legislation as well as the right to issue emergency ordinances. He appoints the government and is nominally chief executive. Under the chairmanship of the Prime Minister, real executive power is exercised by the government, which is accountable to parliament. The legislature lies with the unicameral parliament (Althing), which dates back to 930. Its 63 MPs are elected for 4 years using the proportional representation system. In 1984 the voting age was lowered from 20 to 18 years.
Jakobsdóttir has led a left-right government since 2017. The head of government advocates improved infrastructure in the areas of education, health and transport and takes measures to combat corruption. She takes a position against accession to the European Union and against Iceland’s membership in NATO. Urgent tasks arise for the government from the problems with the rise in real estate prices as well as with unemployment and mass tourism.
In the Corona crisis, the government is using a mobile phone app that can be used to track the spread of the virus. A stable health system and high test rates keep the number of infected people low and lead to an extremely low death rate. Some restrictions were lifted from May 4th, 2020.
The non-party Guðni Thorlacius Jóhannesson has been President of the Republic since 2016.
The national flag, designed in 1913 and introduced in 1915, shows the red, white-framed Scandinavian cross in a blue cloth. The color scheme is reminiscent of Norway, to which Iceland feels connected through its shared history, and of Denmark’s centuries of domination. Blue and white are the old Icelandic colors and symbolize the sea and the mountain peaks (blue) or glaciers and geysers (white); Red stands for the fire of the volcanoes.
The coat of arms, valid since 1944, shows a shield standing on a basalt block in the shape of the island, the appearance of which (red, white bordered cross on a blue background) corresponds to the flag. The shield is surrounded by four figures from the Icelandic sagas (bull and griffin on the heraldic right, giant and dragon on the left), who are described in the epic “Heimskringla” as “land guards” protecting the island in all four directions. The royal crown of Denmark rested on the shield until 1944.
National holiday: June 17th commemorates the proclamation of the republic in 1944. Check a2zcamerablog to see Iceland Tour Plan.
Important parties are the conservative Independence Party (founded in 1929, market economy-oriented), the Progressive Party (founded in 1916, populist), the Social Democratic Alliance (founded in 1999, one of only two pro-European parties in Iceland), the Left party -Green Movement (founded in 1999, eco-socialist-feminist-pacifist), the Pirate Party (founded in 2012, direct democracy with the demand for a possible public veto against new laws), the Reform Party (founded in 2016, eco-liberal, pro-European), the populist People’s Party (founded in 2016, populist-socialist), the right-wing conservative Center Party that emerged in 2017 (populist, a split from the Progressive Party).
The liberal party Bright Future (Shiny Future, founded in 2012) and other very small parties did not move into parliament in 2017.
The membership of the Icelandic trade unions has been relatively stable for years. In 2014, 86.4% of workers were unionized. The largest trade union federation is the Icelandic Workers’ Federation (ASÍ; founded 1916).
Iceland is administratively divided into 8 regions, mainly for statistical purposes. It deviates from this in terms of economic, political and other aspects. There are e.g. B. six constituencies in the country and the health service distinguishes seven districts.
Iceland belongs to the Scandinavian legal system (Nordic legal system), which differs from the rest of Europe. Icelandic law is characterized by a large number of individual laws, some of which go back to laws that were in force before independence and to international cooperation.
The case law has been in three stages since 2018. The first instance are 8 district courts. Under certain conditions, an appeal can be lodged with the appellate court as a second instance against their decisions. The Supreme Court (Hæstiréttur) in Reykjavík consists of seven judges and also functions as a constitutional court. In the event that cabinet members of the government are suspected of criminal acts, a special court (Landsdómur) can also be convened.
In addition, there is an independent labor court in Reykjavík, which decides in first and last instance on collective labor disputes.
