Iceland's beleaguered Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson says he is "not afraid" of facing voters after meeting with coalition partner Bjarni Benediktsson, the finance minister who heads the Independence Party.
The two had discussed the work of the government, Gunnlaugsson wrote on Facebook, saying he had told Benediktsson that "if the parliamentarians of the (Independence) party are not willing to support the government in finishing their joint work, I would dissolve the parliament and call for elections as soon as possible."
Gunnlaugsson, who has been urged to resign following a claim that he and his wife secretly channelled funds to an offshore tax haven in the Caribbean, is now in a meeting with President Olafur Ragnar Grimsson.
