Women won about 30 out of 63 seats, or 47.6%.

Iceland briefly believed that it had made history by electing Europe’s first parliament with a feminist majority, before a recount of votes showed it had failed to do so.

Women won about 30 out of 63 seats, or 47.6%.

The previous results showed that women won 33 seats, or 52%.

No European country has yet broken the 50% threshold, with Sweden approaching 47%, according to IPU data.
