  1. It looks like the representatives are called members of the Althing.

    Legislative branch:
    unicameral Parliament or Althing (63 seats; members are elected by popular vote to serve four-year terms)

  2. So the Althing is the name of the representatives to the national government, but what about the name for the houses of government?

  3. Iceland has a unicameral legislature. That means it has only one house. The Althing is the name of this legislature.
