Iceland set to revert to old political order

Four years after the much-heralded "Icelandic Revolution" of 2009, it appears the island's voters are set to reject the Social Democratic/Left-Green coalition and hand power back to the centre-right alliance of the Progressive and Independence parties. The current Prime Minister, Johanna Sigurdsdottir, is retiring, and the election has largely focused on EU membership, with the current government in favour of continuing negotiations, while the opposition want to cease talks with Brussels. Have the four years of economic recovery convinced the Icelanders that self-reliance has guaranteed success?
