Constitutional election in Iceland - new constitution for Iceland

Last saturday there was a Constitutionl election here in ICeland.
People voted on 25 individuals,who should be in a Constitutional assembly,and come with a new Constitution for Iceland.
530 where on the ballot,and everybody could be on the ballot.
But only 530 wanted to be on it.
About 35 % of the voters in Iceland voted last saturday.
Wich is a big dissapointment.
This is a unpresedented vote,that the pblic is given the oppurtunity to make a new Constitution,but Parliement will get what the Constittional assembly,and there it will be discussed,and if parliement likes it, then it will be put forward as Icelands Constitution.
