At 33.2 percent voter popularity, leader Erna Solberg and her Party have advanced 2.6 points recently.
“It’s clear people want a change of government”, she tells NRK, “but there are many tough election debates to go before then, so I’m not taking anything for granted.”

Minor Party the Christian Democrats (KrF) advances slightly to 5.6 percent in the same poll, whilst the Liberals (V) are now under the four-percent electoral threshold at 3.3, down 1.6 percent. 

Though still well above this, Progress (FrP) falls 3.8 percent to 17.8.

Whilst saying she wants a quad-partite coalition, Mrs Solberg is not specific about which Parties will comprise the non-socialist Cabinet.

“The most important thing is that all four Parties say they will contribute to a change of government [...], but it’s just as important that all want the same policies,” she says.

A non-socialist government would get 108 seats in parliament if a general election were called today, whilst the present tri-partite Leftist coalition – Labour (Ap), the Socialist Left (SV), and Centre (Sp) – 61 mandates.

Today’s NORSTAT poll puts the three parties at 28.5 (up 1.4), below-threshold 3.9, and 4 percent, respectively.
