Norwegians vote, shift to the right seen as likely

Published: 09.09.13, 12:50 / Israel News

Voters across Norway cast ballots Monday in a parliamentary election that could see a strong showing for the anti-immigration Progress Party and lead to a power change in the oil-rich nation for the first time since 2005.


Despite Norway's strong economy and low unemployment, Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg's center-left coalition has been trailing in polls for months. The Progress Party appears likely to come into government for the first time as part of a center-right coalition led by Erna Solberg's Conservative Party, which pledges to cut taxes and increase availability of private health care.
