A centre-right tri-Party coalition is looking increasingly likely just under three months prior to this year’s general election, a new poll for VG shows.

28.7 per cent of non-socialist voters favour a Conservative (H)-Liberal (V)-Christian Democrat (KrF) model, while preference for a Conservative-Progress (FrP) coalition currently stands at 28 per cent.

Next in the polls, 18.6 per cent express preference for a pure Conservative government, 16.3 per cent a quad-Party Cabinet (FrP, H, V, Krf – Right to Left).

“We’re neither where we nor our voters would like,” Labour secretary Raymond Johansen told the paper about this latest poll.

Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg is confident the general election will elucidate the difference between different government alternatives. At the same time, he declares “the Conservatives and Progress Party want to take Norway in a completely different direction.”

“They're going to promise more than I am every day until the election, but it is important to emphasise that it’s not the sum of the non-socialist parties' promises that counts, but what they have agreed together,” he soothes in an email.

Research company InFact’s poll shows the Conservatives currently stand at 33.9 percent, Labour at 29.5 per cent. Progress has a 12.6 per cent voter popularity.

The single-figure results for the other four Parties – Liberals, Christian Democrats, Centre Party (Sp), and Socialist Left (SV) – show 5 per cent, 4.7 per cent, 4.8 per cent, and 4.3 per cent, respectively. These mean all are over the 4-per cent electoral threshold.

1,050 people over 18 years of age participated in InFact’s survey, which had a three per cent error margin.
