Iceland PM calls for snap election after government collapses

Iceland Prime Minister calls on Friday for snap election after government collapses, told AFP news agency.

Iceland’s prime minister called a snap parliamentary election on Friday following the decision of one of the three coalition parties to quit the government formed less than nine months ago.

One of Iceland’s three coalition parties said it would quit the government formed less than nine months ago, citing a “breach of trust” after the prime minister’s party allegedly tried to cover up a scandal involving his father.
