Finally resignations

Bjorgvin G. Sigurdsson has just announced his resignation as Minister of Finance. He says he wants to take responsibility for his part in the government’s failure to win the trust of the people and create an environment to rebuild the country. He will continue as a member of parliament and wants to renew his mandate with his voters. 

He is a better man for it.

Also resigning will be the board of the Financial Authority and its CEO Jonas F. Jonsson.  

When American presidents chose their ministers they are urged to chose experts in their respective fields. Lets hope from now on the requirements for Icelandic ministers will include more than work within their own parties.
