Conservative win in Norway leaves Greens without influence

By Staff reporter 13 September 2017

A bloc led by Conservative Prime Minister Erna Solberg has won Norway’s parliamentary elections, which were held on Monday.

The result took the role of kingmaker away from the Green Party, which has advocated for an end to all oil and gas exploration in Norway within 15 years.

"We won support for four more years because we have delivered on what we have promised and also because we have met tough challenges," Solberg said at a rally in Oslo on Tuesday.
