REYKJAVIK, Iceland — Iceland’s next leader will be an openly gay former flight attendant who parlayed her experience as a union organizer into a decades-long political career.

“Now we need a strong government that works with the people,” Sigurdardottir told reporters Wednesday, adding that a new administration will likely be installed Saturday.
