Ruling coalition between left, conservatives and liberals wins elections in Iceland

The coalition that has governed Iceland for four years has won again in the legislative elections and manages to retain its majority in Parliament. The Executive is made up of leftist, conservative and liberal parties and among them they have won 37 seats out of 63 seats.

The conservative Independence Party is the one with the most MPs in Iceland, with 24.4% of the support and 16 MPs in total. The Liberal Progressive Party has obtained 17.3% of the votes, which translates into 13 deputies, five more than in previous elections.

For its part, the Left-Green Movement has achieved 12.6% of the support, eight deputies, three less than in the last elections. These three parties are the ones that make up the current government in Iceland and those that manage to retain power and re-issue the coalition to continue governing.

The rest of the matches

For its part, the Popular Party has obtained six deputies, and has added two since the last elections. Finally, the Socialist Party has not achieved representation, since it has only garnered 4% of the votes.

For the first time in history, there will be more women than men in the Icelandic Parliament, as 33 women and 30 men have been represented.
