Yesterday Iceland elected a new president.  After the final deadline to announce a candidacy, with the requirement to have a list of at least 1,500 supporters, on May 21st, nine candidates competed.   Three to four candidates were considered to have a break for the job, and five that most Icelanders thought would not have a chance, which became apparent in the elections.
