Politics in Iceland at stake again

Iceland – 63 parliamentary seats are being contested based on Iceland’s proportional representation electoral system. Voters will vote for predetermined party lists rather than individual candidates. In the elections11 parties are on the ballot. The current three-part center coalition has been in power for four years, but the Left-Green party has lost popularity over the years.

Stakeholders at general Iceland elections were conducted between September 13 and September 16 and it showed that more than 72 percent of respondents ranked the health care system as their top priority in terms of how they will cast their ballots this weekend.
