Sigmundur or Bjarni Benediktsson will become the next prime minister of Iceland
It is now almost certain that the two parties will form the new government. If something else was to happen, they would have to seriously disagree on some major issues during the negotiation process. It has been predicted that Sigmundur will become the next PM of Iceland as his negotiation position was and is very strong. His party gained the most support of all parties between elections and he received the mandate to form a new government from the president.
