Iceland votes in general election
April 27 , 2013
Voters in Iceland have hit the polls in elections expected to remove the ruling center-left coalition.
The two center-right parties have been predicted to win after vowing to relax unpopular austerity policies.
The conservative Independence Party and their traditional coalition partners, the Progressives, are expected to win a majority in the 63-strong parliament.
The victory would be seen as a major comeback for the center-right, which was blamed for Iceland's near-economic collapse in 2008.
Their win could also hinder the island nation's EU membership talks.
Polls opened this morning at 9:00 am GMT and will close at 10:00 pm GMT.
More than 230,000 voters are eligible to cast their ballots.
