Mr Hareide, who also heads parliament’s own 22 July evaluation committee, says several questions remain unanswered about Anders Behring Breivik’s terror attacks that shook Norway last year. 

According to NRK, he wanted the PM to answer whether security system failures were the biggest Norway had experienced since the World War II.

Jens Stoltenberg, did not reply to this question, but confirmed to the broadcaster this was the case to the broadcaster this was so when asked after his account. Minister of Justice Grete Faremo also addressed MPs gathered at today’s extraordinary session.

Other Party leaders for the Opposition considered both Stoltenberg and Faremo’s disclosures to be acceptable but lacking in distinct deadlines and punch.

“The Government is good at initiating and examining, but I doubt its follow-through capabilities. It must understand culture cannot be changed by circulars”, declared the Liberals’ (V) Trine Skei Grande. Conservative Party (H) leader Erna Solberg was of a similar opinion.

Siv Jensen, who leads the Progress Party (FrP), was also concerned, strongly believing that “carrying out some of these essential changes that may now be postponed is urgent.”

She also stressed that Jensen stressed that the Standing Committee on Scrutiny and Constitutional Affairs should now investigate what went wrong, accountability, and if there should be any consequences. 

Christian Democrat leader Knut Arild Hareide will be bringing his answered questions before the parliamentary body.
