Polling places in Iceland close at 10 pm, after which time we can expect the initial results of the parliamentary election.
Let’s take a look at the results of the 2013 election and compare them with some indications given by the last poll published yesterday.

The Independence Party, 19 MPs; the Progressive Party, 19 MPs; the Social Democratic Alliance, 9 MPs, the Left-Green Movement, 7 MPs; Bright Future, 6 MPs, and the Pirate Party, 3 MPs.
