Iceland returns center-right parties to power

Chairman of the Progressive Party Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson, left, and Independence leader Party Bjarni Benediktsson pose together following general elections on Saturday, April 27, 2013, in Reykjavik, Iceland. Five years after Iceland's economic collapse, early returns signaled that voters are favoring the return of a center-right, Eurosceptic government, widely blamed for the nation's financial woes. Gunnlaugsson and Benediktsson were the two most likely candidates for prime minister under the system of proportional representation used for elections to Iceland's 63-seat parliament, the Althingi.
