For the last few weeks I have thought about running for president of Iceland. During this time I have had a lot of support and encouragement and felt goodwill from the people around me. Both Icelandic and international media have contacted me frequently regarding the matter and have shown much interest in my decision.  I have enjoyed discussing the issue with my friends, family and well-wishers but I decided from the start to give this time and think long and hard before making up my mind.  At the same time I promised myself that the answer had to come from the heart.


Selv om jeg er meget erfaren i fremmede relationer og er vant til at leve i store byer så vel som småbyer, jeg tror jeg fortsatt har mye å lære før jeg kan lage en god president. Jeg tror det er veldig viktig å være godt bevandret i regjeringen og administrasjonen av landet. Therefore, I have decided that this is not the right time for me and I will not run for office at this point.
