Final Election Results

All votes have been counted in Iceland’s parliamentary election. The results are the same as they appeared to be early in the morning, when about 80 percent of votes had been counted.

They are as follows, according to Vísir:

The Independence Party: 29.1 percent or 21 MPs

The Left-Green Movement: 15.8 percent or 10 MPs

The Pirate Party: 14.4 percent or 10 MPs

The Progressive Party: 11.5 percent or 8 MPs

The Reform Party: 10.4 percent or 7 MPs

Bright Future: 7.2 percent, or 4 MPs

The Social Democratic Alliance: 5.8 percent or 3 MPs

Other parties do not have the 5 percent voter support needed to be represented in Alþingi, the Icelandic parliament

Voter turnout was 79.2 percent, the lowest in the history of the republic, RÚV reports. It was 81.5 percent in the 2013 parliamentary election, which at that time was a record low.

It is clear that a two-party government can’t be formed, since parties need 32 seats in parliament combined to form a majority government.

RÚV has published a list with the names of all members of parliament. You can see it here.

Update: Some percentage figures have been updated to reflect the latest figures from RÚV. Those do not affect the number of MPs for any party.
