The Icelandic Parliament will have for the first time majority of women

The new Parliament came out of yesterday's legislative elections in Iceland will have for the first majority of women, Icelandic media reported today after having finished the recount of the votes.

Of the 63 deputies that make up the Allaþingi (Parliament), 33 will be women, 52.4%, reported public television Rúv.

The conservative party of independence, winner of the elections, provides seven parliamentarians, one more than the progressive party and the green left movement, force is chaired by the current first minister, Katrin Jakobsdottir.

In the Icelandic Chamber there will also be five social democratic deputies, four of the pirate party, three of the reformist party and two of the village party (anti-immigration).

The unpublished coalition that Iceland was governed since 2017, formed by conservatives, "progressives" and Rojiverdes, has reinforced its majority, but the fall of the Green Left Movement raises doubts about its future in that constellation, in which I could enter some formation of Center in its place.

The independence party was the most voted with 24.4%, followed by the progressive party, with 17.3%, and the Rojiverdes, with 12.6%.
