Norway’s centre-left opposition wins in a landslide


Norway’s centre-left opposition parties are on course to win a majority in parliament after Monday’s (13 September) election and will now negotiate how to form a coalition, with climate change and a widening wealth gap expected to be central to discussions.

Conservative Prime Minister Erna Solberg conceded the election and will step down after eight years in power, while Labour Party leader Jonas Gahr Stoere said he intends to form the next government.
