Iceland swears in shaky new government after Panama Papers

Iceland's new prime minister Sigurdur Ingi Johannsson of the Progressive Party arrives at the President's residence in Reykjavik, on April 7, 2016Iceland’s new right-wing government took office on Thursday, under fire from the start as the opposition sought a vote of no confidence and stuck to its call for swift elections. New prime minister Sigurdur Ingi Johannsson replaces Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson, who quit Tuesday amid mass protests over a hidden offshore account revealed in the “Panama Papers” leak of millions of financial records. Johannsson, a 53-year-old former veterinarian, has already announced new legislative elections will be held in “the autumn”, about six months ahead of the scheduled April 2017 vote.
