The recent census conducted by Aftenposten shows support for Jens Stoltenberg stood at 43 percent, while Erna Solberg leads slightly by 45 percent.

The female Right-Wing leader declared a year is a long time in politics, but she believes that people are looking for different political solutions.

Asked how her leadership would differ to that of Stoltenberg’s, she replied, “It's hard for me to know since I've never been led by Jens Stoltenberg.

“I am concerned with providing freedom but on the condition of responsibility. I probably also prioritise some other issues than Jens Stoltenberg. I have been keen to get under the skin of how the welfare state really works my entire political life.”

Researchers have theorised that the possible increase in Conservative support is due to the way the Party has spoken about their policies, focussing more on welfare and not the economy.
