|According to the latest polls, the Pirate Party in Iceland has a serious shot at taking part in the next Government coalition, with roughly 20% of all votes just before the parliamentary elections.
The Pirate party movement was founded a decade ago and has scored some significant victories since then. For example, they have a continuing presence in the European Parliament, and now are ready for the historic win in Iceland. They already have 3 members in the national Parliament, and many more may join in the future. The Pirates have been leading the polls for most of the year and are now competing with the Social Democratic Alliance to become the largest party in Iceland.
Despite the Pirate name, copyright issues are not central to the party’s plans, although they do speak out against recent web-blocking efforts, including orders to ISPs to block access to infringing services like The Pirate Bay. The party believes that such censorship efforts will lead to more stringent measures, adding that some Internet service providers are going to fight the blockades in court.
According to the polls, the Pirate Party movement receives support across all age groups, although it usually appealed to the younger generations. The Pirate Party was in part formed by supporters of the Icelandic Modern Media Initiative – a parliamentary resolution to create the best environment for freedom of information and free expression. This resolution implies limited liability for intermediaries, protection for whistleblowers, sources and data.
So, there is a realistic chance that the Pirates will book a historic election win in Iceland, which would allow them to govern the country during the years to come.
