Iceland's new Left-Green prime minister declares support for environmental isssues

Iceland’s new prime minister, Katrín Jakobsdóttir, leader of the Left-Greens has formed a coalition government with the right-wing Independence Party and the centre-right Progressive party. Today’s announcement marks the end of a month of frenzied negotiations between the frontrunners in last month’s general election as they attempted to form a workable coalition.

Full details of ministerial responsibilities across the coalition are still being finalised, but the Left-Greens – known to be anti-whaling – will head the Environment Ministry and Katrin promises that her government will forefront environmental issues and global warming.
