Pirate Party a Reasonable 2nd

The Pirate party stole the hearts of Icelanders, with its anti-establishment appeals of a “crowdsourced constitution,” Internet freedom, and the legalization of drugs.

But that wasn’t enough to win the general election Saturday. The Pirates tied for second, earning 10 representatives in the country’s 63-seat Parliament. The Conservative Independence Party, the junior partner in the current governing coalition, came in first with 21 seats, up from 19 last elections.
