Iceland elects Europe's first women-majority parliament

For the first time in Europe, Iceland has elected more women than men to its parliament, as the final results of a national election on Sunday showed.
33 women were elected to parliament with 63 seats, up from 24 in the last Icelandic election.
Only three other countries - Rwanda, Cuba and Nicaragua - have more women than men in parliament, while Mexico and the United Arab Emirates have an exact 50/50 split, according to the Inter-Parliamentary Union.
The island with 371,000 inhabitants was ranked the country with the highest gender equality in the world for the twelfth time in a row in a report published by the World Economic Forum.
The overall outcome of the elections has meant that the current left-right coalition remains in control.
The three parties in the coalition - the Left-Green Movement, the Conservative Independence Party and the Progressive Party - said ahead of the election that they would negotiate further cooperation if they held a majority.
