A total of 7,454 people, 3.2 percent of registered voters in Iceland, participated in an informal online election on whether the Icelandic parliament, Althingi, should pass the bill on the state guarantee on the Icesave agreement with the UK and the Netherlands.
The majority of those who voted, almost 70 percent, want Althingi to reject the state guarantee on the Icesave agreement. Close to 29 percent of voters supported the agreement but 1.6 percent didn’t take a stand, Fréttabladid reports.
The election is the first safe electronic voting held in Iceland. It was organized by the online medium Eyjan and the technology was provided by deCODE Genetics. It began on Sunday and ended yesterday at 4:30 pm.
