Norwegian Election Result

Tue Sep 10, 2013 10:26 am

The socialists coalition govt took a bit of a beating, waking up this morning sure felt good, Norway has shifted to the right, which still makes them fairly far left but not as close to communism as they were yesterday.

The Conservative party and its allies won over voters with promises of tax cuts, better health and elderly care, and stricter rules on immigration.

With 99.7 percent of the votes counted, the four right-wing parties were projected to win 96 seats, compared to 72 won by the out-going centre-left coalition, well beyond the 85 needed to secure a majority in parliament.
