From BBC News:
Prime Minister Halldor Asgrimsson of Iceland has announced he is stepping down following his party's poor performance in local elections.A government leader taking responsibility? I wonder what that is like?
He said he would retain his seat in parliament, but would not hold a position in the cabinet.
"I take personal responsibility that the party lost," the prime minister said.
Analysts say Mr Asgrimsson had also been under pressure to resign amid rising interest rates and inflation.
