The Left also known as the Left Party (Skadian: Venstre; ᚡᛂᚿᛋᛐᛂ) is a political party in Skade. The party is the most left-wing party of the five represented in the Althing. The party was banned from 1991-2002, but according to the National Court of Skade is not to be regarded as extremely left or a threat to democracy. However, many members are under surveillance by the SIOS for the protection of the constitution on account of suspected extremist tendencies. In Jyväskila and Kvällhälla, the entire party is under surveillance by local authorities. It is sometimes associated with the militant Anti-Fascist Action (Antifascistisk Aksjon).
