Iceland's Left-Green opposition leader to become new prime minister

COPENHAGEN, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Iceland’s opposition leader Katrin Jakobsdottir will become the country’s new prime minister, after her Left-Green Movement on Wednesday agreed to form a coalition government, state broadcaster RUV reported.

Her party, which emerged as the second biggest party in snap parliamentary elections on Oct. 28, entered coalition talks with the Independence Party, the main partner in the current government coalition, and the Progressive Party two weeks ago.
