Polls still favour the opposition
Recent polls have suggested that voters are turning away from the government parties.
And little appears to have changed in this respect.
Two new polls, commissioned by news portals vp.fo and in.fo, indicate that the opposition parties would secure a majority vote if a general election were held now.
In the vp.fo poll, Javnaðarflokkurin came out on top with 28.5 percent of the vote, which would secure ten parliamentary seats.
Government party Sambandsflokkurin received 20.3 percent of the vote and seven seats, followed by opposition party Tjóveldi with 19 percent and six seats.

The other major government party, Fólkaflokkurin, saw the biggest drop, going from 24.5 percent of the vote and eight seats in the last election to 18.4 percent and six seats in this poll.
Miðflokkurin, the third government party, saw a slight improvement on the last election, going from 5.4 percent of the vote to 6 percent, retaining both of its parliamentary seats.

Opposition party Framsókn had a slight drop but retains its two seats.
Fellow opposition party Sjálvstýri stands to lose its single seat in this poll.
The in.fo poll also puts Javnaðarflokkurin in the lead with ten seats, followed by Tjóðveldi with seven.
Fólkaflokkurin receives six seats in this poll, Sambandsflokkurin five, Framsókn three, Miðflokkurin two and Sjálvstýrið none.
