In a first for Europe, Iceland voted more women than men into its parliament, final results of a national election showed on Sunday.
Thirty-three women were voted into the 63-seat parliament, up from 24 in Iceland's last election.
Only three other countries - Rwanda, Cuba and Nicaragua - have more women than men in parliament, while Mexico and the United Arab Emirates have an exact 50/50 split, according to data from the Inter-Parliamentary Union.
The island of 371,000 people was ranked the most gender-equal country in the world for the 12th year running in a World Economic Forum report released in March.
The overall election result saw the current left-right coalition government retain its control.
The coalition’s three parties - the Left-Green Movement, the conservative Independence Party and the Progressive Party - said before the election that they would negotiate continued cooperation if they held their majority.
