Icelandic Movement – Living Country (Icelandic: Íslandshreyfingin – lifandi land) was a green political party in Iceland founded by the reporter and environmentalist Ómar Ragnarsson and Sigurlín Margrét Sigurðardóttir in 2007[1] to contest the 2007 parliamentary election. It failed to clear the election threshold and did not enter the Alþingi due to new law touching minimum percent of political parties who were raised to 5% though the party would have got three parliamentarians according to the older laws. At the Social Democratic Alliance's party congress in late March 2009, the Icelandic Movement became part of the SDA.[1]
