Icelandic Parliament Reconvenes

Alþingi, the Icelandic parliament, reconvenes today at 3 pm after a two-month long summer recess, reports. The last meeting in parliament was on June 8. This parliamentary session is expected to be short, since the government has announced that elections will be held on October 29.

Today’s schedule begins with Prime Minister Sigurður Ingi Jóhannsson giving a speech on the country’s state of affairs. The speech will be followed by a question and answer session, where members of the opposition get a chance to pose questions to cabinet members.
