Hundreds More Want Iceland as Norway’s 20th County

Around 700 Icelanders registered with Fylkisflokkurinn (‘The County Party’), which wants the country to become Norway’s 20th county, within a period of 48 hours earlier this week, reports. A special registration site was set up for this purpose, Iceland Review reports.

The group aims for the “re-unification of Iceland and Norway.” The idea is that the Norwegian government would protect and promote Icelandic culture while Icelanders would enjoy all the same rights as Norwegians.
