Posted by African Press International on September 10, 2013

The Conservative Party of Norway has won the elections. Stoltenberg of the Labour Party who has ruled the country for eight years loses the fight to remain premier. Erna Solberg now  becomes the Prime Minister. Her government will be a coalition consisting of Three parties.

The Labour party ruled the country in a coalition with the Center Party (farmers party), and the Socialist Left party. The Conservatives will now rule in a coalition with the Left wing party, the Christian party and the Progress party

Many refugees and asylum seekers will now have to change their attitude in connection with receiving welfare. Those who have relied on welfare will have to work in order to receive welfare if they are not in any employment. The Progress party with the Conservative party will push for all those in the welfare system to look for jobs instead of relying on handouts from the government.
