Norway Opposition mulls PM no confidence vote. Right-Wing Parties say they may consider putting forward a vote of no confidence in Jens Stoltenberg following last week’s report from the 22 July Commission. The Conservatives (H) and the Progress Party (FrP) have stated they will give the government an opportunity to answer questions about the findings before considering action, but do not discount the possibility. Leaders Erna Solberg and Siv Jensen made the statements during a debate in Arendal, Thursday. Both want Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg to answer questions on the report.

The Conservatives (H) and the Progress Party (FrP) have stated they will give the government an opportunity to answer questions about the findings before considering action, but do not discount the possibility.

Leaders Erna Solberg and Siv Jensen made the statements during a debate in Arendal, Thursday. Both want Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg to answer questions on the report. 

“We have to wait to see what he says, but might consider a vote of no confidence,” and FrP press spokesperson tells The Foreigner.

The Prime Minister, who was due to give a speech at this year’s ONS oil conference in Stavanger, will now be answering questions in parliament about the report on 28th August instead.

According to the Conservatives, “we cannot conclude so early in the process, but we do not discount that we might put forward a vote of no confidence.”
