Some of Iceland’s most populous municipalities are still looking for a mayor following the municipal elections May 26, RÚV reports. In many of the towns in question, an independent mayor was a condition agreed upon during majority negotiations that followed the election.

At least 14 municipalities across the country are currently searching for a mayor. Akureyri, Fjarðabyggð, Hornafjörður, and Vesturbyggð, some of the most populous municipalities outside the capital, are among those which have issued a public job posting for the position of mayor. Vík í Mýrdal, Skagafjörður, Strandabyggð, and Bláskógarbyggð have also advertised for the position of head of their town council.

In addition to the above towns, Ísafjörður, Blönduós, Árborg, and Grindavík are yet to appoint a mayor. Job requirements include leadership skills, management experience, positive attitude, and initiative.
