The Best Party (Icelandic: Besti flokkurinn) was an Icelandic political party founded by Jón Gnarr on 16 November 2009. The party ran in the 2010 city council election in Reykjavík and won a plurality on the Reykjavík City Council, receiving 34.7% of the vote, defeating the Independence Party which received 33.6%. It was a member of the International Pirate Party, but was not associated with Pirate Party Iceland. Jón Gnarr announced that the party was to be dissolved after he stepped down as mayor after the upcoming local elections in May 2014. Many of the Best Party's members have joined Bright Future, although Jón himself stopped political participation.
The founder and chairman of the party was the former Mayor of Reykjavik Jón Gnarr. The party was founded several months after the Icelandic parliamentary election in 2009, and competes on the national level as the Bright Future party, led by MP and Best Party Vice President Heiða Kristín Helgadóttir. Bright Future currently holds six seats in the Althing.
The party's initial success is seen as a backlash against establishment parties in the wake of Iceland's 2008-2011 financial crisis.
