It’s polling day for Norwegians. The babies have been kissed, the stay-at-homes might not be voting, and it’s all over bar the shouting.

According to Aftenposten’s latest opinion poll published yesterday, it looks as though the coalition centre-left government -- Arbeiderpartiet (Ap), Sosialistisk Venstre (SV), and Senterpartiet (Sp) -- will win by a slim majority, getting 85 seats in parliament.

The four opposition parties are set to win 83, whilst it’s forecasted that the extreme left seems will trail behind with just one.

If the election follows the results below, it will mean business as usual for another four years.

The following figures, with between a 1.5 and 2.5 percent margin of error, are based on 1,502 interviews conducted by Aftenposten on Saturday.
