The 2016 Icelandic parliamentary election

The winners of the Icelandic parliamentary election are the Pirate Party, Viðreisn and the Left-Greens. The Independence Party did extremely well, in light of their polling leading up to the election and the fact that they encountered splintering in the lead-up to the election. Viðreisn and the Pirate Party will likely play key roles in the formation of the next coalition government, but there are many possible governments. The Social Democratic Alliance suffered significant losses, which can perhaps be explained by the party's failure to implement its policies during its six years in government (2007-2013).
