Growth and integration are still at the center of Norwegian politics


The external support guaranteed by Christian Democrats and Liberals proves to be very expensive: the minority government formed by the Conservatives of (“Høyre”) and by populists (“Fremskrittspartiet”) had to change the initial draft of the program to secure the partial support of the two minor parties, for which the original budget has been increased by two billion two hundred million crowns. Support to families, funds for transport, deductions in favor of low-income couples were increased.

Liberals and Christian Democrats got their way also with regard to acceptance of demands from different social groups:  fishermen will have greater support and innovation in favor of agriculture will be strengthened. Other innovations include introducing more researchers in universities and funds to enhance the school environment where learning takes place. There will be more funding for low-income families (but at the same time assistance funds through external staff that takes care of the children will decrease) the share of overall social benefits will be increased by one percent. The Liberals have obtained funds for foreign children’s integration and there are also good news for sustainable projects and voluntary organizations, who see an increase, albeit slightly, of public funds at their disposal. Taxes on oil and electricity will go up.

Høyre’s  new ministers (in addition to the Premier Erna Solberg)  are Børge Brende (Foreign Affairs), Torbjørn Røe-Isaksen (Education), Bent Høye (Health), Ine Marie Eriksen Søreide (Defense), Thorild Widvey (Culture), Elisabeth Asparker (Fisheries), Monica Mæland (Industry), Vidar Helgesen (at the Prime Minister Office),  Tine Sundtoft (Environment),  Jan Tore Sanner (Municipal and Modernization). Fremskrittspartiet’s new minister are Siv Jensen (Finance Minister), Anders Anundsen (Justice), Ketil Solvik Olsen (Transport), Sylvi Listhaug (Agriculture), Robert Eriksson (Labour and Social Affairs),Tord Lien (Oil and Energy), Solveig Horne (Children and Equality).
