Submission + - Icelandic Pirate Party received 3 members of parlament

Thorhs writes: According to preliminary results (all votes counted, no official word yet) the Icelandic Pirarte Party was able to secure 3 members of the national parlament, first PP to reach a national parlament. Things were hairy during the election night when the PP lost all their MPs when they dropped below the 5% barrier 'needed' in the somewhat complex election system. Thankfully they managed to slip back up above, ending up with 5.1% of the total votes. The old 'crash parties', the ones in charge before our epic financial crash, (Independent and Progressive parties) are the prime candidates to form a new government with just over 51% of the votes, but 40 of 63 seats. RUV (icelandic) has good coverate, while BBC has some info in english.
