Iceland Opposition Poised to Win General Election
Some voters say the outgoing government did as good a job as could be expected.
"We cannot forget that everything collapsed here and still health care, schools and society in general functions better than in most countries", said Jon Gunnar Bjornsson, an operations manager of one of Iceland's new, post-crisis banks.
"We still retain ownership of hospitals, the road system and the utility companies. I'm not sure we could have expected more.
"But still people are unhappy and want someone to take their debt away and shower them with golden fairy dust."Full results are expected early Sunday. ___ Lawless reported from London. Associated Press writer David Mac Dougall in Reykjavik contributed to this report.
