Trygve Slagsvold Vedum, often branded as a populist leader of his rural-oriented Center Party, finally confirmed his ambitions to be Norway’s new prime minister over the weekend. That still may be a long shot, but public opinion polls now also confirm that the left-center side of Norwegian politics has far more support than the current Conservatives-led government. - Posted on : 09-June-2021
Norways opposition Center Party named its leader Trygve Slagsvold Vedum as a prime ministerial candidate for the upcoming elections, a change from long-standing practice of backing the candidate of its political ally, the Labour Party.
The candidacy of Vedum, Centers leader since 2014, was announced at the party’s national convention on Saturday. Center, which draws support mostly from rural areas, pledges lower taxes and a reversal of centralization, according to a statement on its website. A Center-Labour government "is the best platform" for a government that would benefit the whole country, it said. - Posted on : 07-June-2021
or the time being, populist red-green forces seem to have robbed the radical right of its language as well as its voters.
On March 1, Norway’s far-left Red (Rødt) party polled at 7.6% — its highest ever result. If an election was called today, this could translate to 14 members in the 169-seat parliament, Stortinget, where the party currently has just one, Bjørnar Moxnes. Moxnes is young, charismatic, handsome and a straight-talker — all crucial ingredients for a political party to do well. The Socialist Left party (SV) is on 8%, with another charismatic, media savvy, likeable young man in charge.
Another party that’s doing extremely well is the agrarian Center Party (Sp), which polls at 13.9% in the same Ipsos Mori survey and is also led by a charismatic and smiley young man. Even with the Labor Party (Ap) lagging behind the right at 28.2 %, the far left with Rødt, SV and the Sp would have been given a red-green majority coalition of 96 to 73 MPs six years after the second red-green government led by Jens Stoltenberg lost to the right.
The combined support for the far-left parties and the Center Party has continued to increase in 2019, while the right-wing Progress Party (FrP) is plummeting in the polls. It is now at its lowest in nearly 20 years, garnering less than 10% nationally. A combination of classic radical-right scandals, including corruption and allegations of sexual assault, along with the problems opposition parties face when ruling in coalition with “the enemy” seem to have finally caught up with the FrP. The prognosis for the local elections in September is not good, with some polls measuring FrP’s national average as low as 7.3%, dropping below 5% in some municipalities. - Posted on : 12-April-2021
Hackers have infiltrated the Norwegian Parliaments computer systems and extracted data, officials said on Wednesday, just six months after a previous cyber attack was made public.
The attack by unknown hackers was linked to a "vulnerability" in Microsofts (MSFT.O) Exchange software, the parliament said, adding that this was an "international problem".
The latest attack was more severe than last years, parliament President Tone Wilhelmsen Troen told a news conference.
"This is an attack on our democracy," she said. "The severity is underscored by the fact that this is happening in the run-up to a parliamentary election and as parliament is handling a pandemic." - Posted on : 12-March-2021
