Iceland elects Green prime minister
Iceland now has a Green head of government. Katrin Jakobsdottir became prime minister this week when her new coalition government took power. The new coalition government spans the entire political spectrum in Iceland. It is comprised of the Left Green Movement, the Independence Party and the Progressive Party. Greens continue to defy the pressure to be restricted to a single place on the political spectrum. Greens are about striving for good government, period.
