Islannin hallituskoalitio aikoo jatkaa veroparatiisipaljastuksista alkaneesta poliittisesta kaaoksesta huolimatta. Toistaiseksi ei ole varmaa, järjestetäänkö maassa aikaistettuja vaaleja.

Panama-paljastusten keskelle joutunut pääministeri sanoi eilen astuvansa syrjään. Hän kuitenkin tarkensi myöhemmin, että ei aio erota, vaan on pyytänyt puolueensa varapuheenjohtajaa työskentelemään pääministerin tehtävässä määrittelemättömän ajan.

Pääkaupungissa Reykjavikissa on osoitettu mieltä hallitusta vastaan jo kolmatta päivää.
