"Look to Norway"

As FDR said in 1942, "look to Norway".

Congratulations to our comrades in Det Norske Arbeiderparti on their re-election in last week's general election. The new government consists of the Labour Party, the Centre Party and the Socialist Left Party, with Labour's Jens Stoltenberg remaining PM.

The results were:

DNA (Labour Party) - 35.4% (up 2.7% from 2005) - 64 seats (up 3)

FRP (Progress Party - far right) - 22.9% (up 0.8%) - 41 seats (up 3)

Hoyre (conservatives) - 17.2% (up 3.1%) - 30 seats (up 7)

SV (Socialist Left) - 6.2% (down 2.6%) - 11 seats (down 4)

SP (Centre Party - agrarians) - 6.2% (down 0.3%) - 11 seats (unchanged)

KRF (Christian Democrats) - 5.5% (down 1.3%) - 10 seats (down 1)

Venstre (Radical liberals) - 3.9% (down 2%) - 2 seats (down 8)
