Reykjavik - Arab Today

Iceland will hold early legislative elections in the autumn as a result of the government crisis prompted by the Panama Papers scandal that pushed the prime minister to resign this week, the government announced Wednesday.

"We expect to have elections this autumn," Agriculture Minister Sigurdur Ingi Johanssonn told reporters after being named the new prime minister to replace Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson, who stepped down Tuesday amid massive public protests.
