Then, in the most propable option, the Centre Party gets involved.

Would this completely rule out same-sex marriage?

And in case this party is out of the coalition, how long do you think it would take before same-sex marriage is implemented, taking into account the proposals of 2014? Could it be within this year?

However, according to the polls you included here, the Centre Party could be even out of the assembly.

It is curious to see the different positions within the SD. MPs like Rigmor Dam were actively campaigning for same-sex marriage, would they vote for the Centre Party and rule it out?

Also, I talked to a Faroese MP about a year ago and he told me that, even if he was in favor of same-sex marriage, he was skeptical about the polls showing so much support among population. He further added that for those who were OK with it, it was not a major or important issue, but for those against it, it could be decisive when they vote.

Yes sorry, I meant the SD agreeing on a coalition with the Centre Party.

It seems, though, that same-sex marriage is a secondary issue over there, as they would prioritize other matters.

In your opinion, how likely is the scenario of an election result where Republican/SD alone get the 17 seats?

Yes, but my question was more general. I meant whether Republicans and SD, alone, the 1st of September, could get 17 seats in parliament (e.g. 9 for SD, 8 for Republicans), so that alone could form a a government coalition without any other party. How likely could this be?

Is not the current MP of the Home Rule Party part of the scandal of the tunnel too?

Still, if they get 16 only with theHomeRule Party, they will need the Centre

So the Home Rule Party changes its leader but not the UP. But of a suicide for the UP, but maybe things work differently in the Faroe.

It looks complicated. But it seems the case of the tunnel cannot be regarded as corruption but instead a a mistake in the management.

To me, it looks worse the supposed which surrounded Lars Lokke in Denmark.

But those were not proven and he is PM anyway.

Also oftenthe right wing vote is underestimated in the polls

Atleast in my country no one votes for the conservatives and then, voila

But the UP is actually not that conservative as the PP

It also seems strange to me why the UP and the PP were forming coalition with the Centre Party as well, and not only with the Home Rule Party, as that would be enough for them.

Taking into account that some seats danced in the last period, I can understand why a coalition wants something more than mere 17 seats. But if the PP has ended in bad terms with UP, which party could they ally with? In case figures matched, would they be able to be allies of the Republic Party,as they both are pro-independence?

Do you think that in the current climate, a 17 seats only coalition would be considered strong enough? Even if SD and Republic by themselves alone reach that figure.

The antiGay position seems to increase the Centre Party. Even id it is out of a coalition, would it mean that the other parties would hesitate/delay the issue, at least until next year, if the centre party increases due to thiis issue? Or maybe send it to referendum?

How likely would SD and UP would be to sacrifice gay marriage to ge an agreement with centre?

The progress party seems too neoliberal in economy, isnt it? And that seems a big issue now.

I mean, economy seems the big issue. Would a left wing coalition with the Progress Party actually work? You sayyiu are skeptical.

It seems things are dancing a bit, from what you say the tunnel issue is no longer central in the campaign and UP is resisting

Progress seems unstable, but you lll never know. All this Faroese politics seem far too unpredictable.

What about a three big parties coalition?

From what you say, it looks like, then, there will be a government SD, Republic, Progress, most likely?

If fishing cuotas are important and, on the other hand, they would pass other laws like same-sex marriage, that SD, Republic and Progress (in spite of being this one more right-wing), would be the most likely?
