Norway's government faces election defeat, poll shows

August 10, 2021 - Norway’s centre-left opposition parties are expected to defeat Conservative Prime Minister Erna Solberg’s coalition in September’s ballot, giving Labour Party leader Jonas Gahr Stoere a chance to negotiate a power-sharing agreement with left-leaning groups.

Widely praised last year for a swift coronavirus lockdown, giving Norway one of Europe’s lowest Covid-19 mortality rates, Solberg nevertheless faces a backlash over economic inequality and public sector reforms that have proven unpopular, according to Reuters.

In April the prime minister was fined by police for breaking social distancing rules at her birthday gathering, further damaging her standing.
