The President of Iceland has asked Social Democratic party leader Ingibjorg Gisladottir to try to form an interim administration.
It is reported that Social Affairs Minister Johanna Sigurdardottir will be named as interim Prime Minister.
If chosen Ms Sigurdardottir, 66, will become the first openly gay or lesbian person to become a head of government.
She has been an MP since 1978 and was recently voted the most popular politician in
Yesterday the country's Prime Minister stood down and the entire Cabinet resigned.
A general election has been called for May 9th.
The government was toppled by the financial crisis, which severely affected the Icelandic banking system.
