Immigrant voters flee Socialist Left / News / The Foreigner

Immigrant voters flee Socialist Left. Sunk by 75 percent in four years. “We don’t gain anything by supporting SV’s politics. They say that everyone is decent, but that’s not effective,” the translator and author Somali Amal Aden, who came to Norway 13 years ago tells the Norwegian News Agency (NTB). She also goes on to criticize the social democratic Labour Party’s (Ap) political asylum policy, and claims that those who apply for the wrong reasons commit criminal offences whilst waiting for their application to be processed, instead of being thrown out of the country.
