He put this statement forward at the end of a Dagbladet video. Shot in southern Norway’s Arendal during his electioneering, the footage features him, his advisor André Kolve, and Trondheim-based DJ Kevin Ndungu.

Mr Sandberg, deputy Progress Party leader, was the only person with white skin in shot.

“For more than 30 years, journalists and political opponents have been saying that Progress is xenophobic, that we have a perspective on humanity, we hate immigrants. I understand very well that young people walk around and believe this,” declared Mr Sandberg.

The video begins with Mr Ndungu approaching them, saying he found it ridiculous that Mr Sandberg “had a dark-skinned person in suit walking with him representing FrP.”

Mr Sandberg stated that he found Mr Ndungu prejudice. André Kolve pointed out he would not have been working for him if he had been a racist.

“Families with young children who have learned Norwegian being sent out of the country. That’s what you stand for,” the DJ said.

Mr Sandberg blamed the other Parties’ policies for this, adding the situation would not have arisen if people had voted to get Progress into power at the 2001 general election.

“No, there would have been many fewer foreigners here,” said Kevin Ndungu.

“That’s probably so, completely right,” Mr Sandberg replied.

“Point proven, I don’t need to say anything more,” stated Mr Ndungu.

In a recent case, a Progress Party politician walked out of a local bar because there were too many foreigners.

Per Sandberg had no further comment to make about the video to The Foreigner.
