The new government will have to negotiate in parliament on any proposals they submit, including budget spending.

The Norwegian Workers’ Party and the Center Party agreed to form a minority government after negotiations that lasted about a month. This is reported by the newspaper Aftenposten Friday, October 8th.

Labor Party leader Jonas Gara Store will become prime minister next week and replace Conservative Prime Minister Erna Solberg, who announced after her defeat in the elections that she plans to step down.

The new government will present a detailed program document on October 13, and the next day will present the new composition of the Cabinet of Ministers.

The new government will have 76 out of 185 MPs in parliament. It will have to negotiate in parliament on any proposals they present, including budget spending.

As a reminder, the Labor Party, Center Party and Socialists won the majority of seats in the parliamentary elections in Norway September 13, but could not overcome the differences.

Minority government is common in Norway. Erna Solberg ruled the country under these conditions for most of her eight-year premiership.
