Iceland's Pirate Party in box seat ahead of weekend election

From Morning Report, 7:38 am on 28 October 2016

Iceland's Pirate Party, founded by activists and hackers four years ago, is on course to either win or finish a close second in tomorrow's election. One of the candidate's Oktavía Jónsdóttir  told us they are already in discussion with other parties so they can form a government straight after election. They argue for open government and transparency in general in goverment but it's not all serious. their flag is a pirate flag with an Icelandic saltfish in the middle.
