Mongstad minister could be reshuffled

Report shows Riis-Johansen withheld information.



Things look as though they’re going from bad to worse for Centre Party (Sp) Petroleum and Energy Minister Terje Riis-Johansen.

Last week, the Christian Democrats (KrF) proposed a motion of no-confidence, alleging Riis-Johansen deliberately didn’t inform Parliament about delays to the Mongstad gas power plant’s CO2 purification project.

The other Opposition Parties, V (Liberal), H (Conservative), and FrP (Progress), have now pledged their support, after yesterday’s report by Statoil and Gassnova contained similar allegations.

Political Science professor Trond Nordby says it’s unique that all four Parties agree, and believes Riis-Johansen could be reshuffled.

“If the Opposition has been deceived, then so have the voters, because MPs represent the voters,” he tells NRK.
