Breaking the ice

Iceland will get a new Prime Minister soon.

The current Minister for Social Affairs, Jóhanna Sigurdardóttir of the Social Democrats, said she is prepared to assume the position of prime minister as long as she senses that her position is backed by sufficient trust.

Foreign Minister and chairwoman of the Social Democrats Ingibjörg Sólrún Gísladóttir proposed that Sigurdardóttir replace Geir H. Haarde, chairman of the Independence Party, as prime minister yesterday, Fréttabladid reports.

Sigurdardóttir said the idea had only been discussed with her yesterday morning.


And why is the change in leadership of a nation with less than 320,000 people of interest?

If Sigurdardóttir does become prime minister, she will be the first woman to serve as prime minister in the country's history and also the first openly gay prime minister in the world.
Anything to keep warm and not be lonely up there I guess.

All joking aside, good luck to Ms. Sigurdardóttir.
