Founding fathers

The U.S. Constitutional Committee was made up mostly of lawyers. So the top picks for me in the election today for Iceland's Constitutional Committee are people with a legal background.

The stjornaskrá is a document that is supposed to last for generations, and should not be filled with too many specific, contemporary issues. It should on the other hand ensure there is a system in place to make sure individual voters feel empowered, and not subjected to party politics.
