Donations made public

What kind of a political party would seek and accept a 300.000 ISK donation from the 112 Emergency Phone Service (what would be Rescue 911 in the US)?  

The Independent Party. And now they await the verdict on whether this donation is legal or not, as 112 was majority owned by the state at the time. 

Donations to political parties have been made public and there are a lot of interesting things to see. The Independent Party receives the most by far and the Progressive Party has its backers amongst the companies owned by those who were given Bunadarbanki at privatization. 

A curious donation of 90.000 ISK was made by the Foreign Ministry to the Progressive Party? It is the only instance of a Ministry supporting a political party and questionable to say the least.
