Labour slips in polls. Norway’s Labour Party (Ap) popularity declines with the general election nine months away, a new voter poll shows. Research company InFact’s latest survey shows a decline of 2.4 percent. Voter confidence in the Party is now at just 29 percent. The news for tri-partite coalition members the Socialist Left (SV) and Centre (Sp) does not make good reading either.

Research company InFact’s latest survey shows a decline of 2.4 percent. Voter confidence in the Party is now at just 29 percent.

The news for tri-partite coalition members the Socialist Left (SV) and Centre (Sp) does not make good reading either.

SV’s 3.3 percent – well below the 4 percent electoral threshold – moots the environment in the parliamentary mandate issue. 

Traditionally farmers’ Party Centre is at 4.5 percent, but with a post cheese/meat toll fall of 0.5 percent.

Today’s poll for VG was carried out following recent highly questionable events surrounding former Deputy Trade and Industry Minister Roger Ingebrigtsen and self-resigned Vågå Mayor Rune Øygard.

Frank Aarebrot, professor of comparative politics at the University of Bergen, tells the paper, voters normally distinguish between Party positions and politicians’ acts.

“Nevertheless they [Parties] will be punished if they handle matters badly,” he says.

All the major Opposition Parties show an increase in voter popularity. Biggest pre-election winners are the Conservatives (H), continuing their climb to 34.3 percent (up 1.2).

Progress (FrP) increases its percentage by 0.6 to 13.3. The Christian Democrats (KrF) gain 0.4 percent to 5.7, and the Liberals (V) are at 5.4 percent (a 0.3 increase).
