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.

Interview with API before the elections:

Press conference before the elections:

Many prefer not to work, instead they choose to get welfare money and stay lazy at home.

Mr Nwosu who is originally from Nigeria has lived in Norway for 22 years and is actively involved in politics. Recently he was re-elected to Council. He is also the leader of the Labour Party in Søndre Nordstrand region within the Oslo City Council. Nwosu is excelling in politics despite the many challenges immigrant politicians have to face due to culture, and traditions in Norway.

The country is now going to the General elections in September to elect members to the National Parliament. The Labour party has been in power for 8 years now and the Right wing parties have ganged up in this elections with the intention to dislodge them.

The Right wing parties – the Conservative party and the Party of Progress ( a radically right-wing party) are trying to put up a unified front in their effort to take over power.

Elvis speaks to African Press on his plans to change the face of the city of Oslo. He thinks the many beggars that roam Oslo streets mainly during the summer season – persons coming from Eastern European country Romania should not be allowed to engage in begging, but instead should seek normal employment.

He is also for change when it comes to prostitution that is rampant in the city. The laws that forbid prostitution which were passed some years back, according to Elvis, has helped many prostitutes to seek other avenues away from the illegal trade. Some Nigerian women who come into the country from Spain and France to engage in prostitution on a short-term basis now realise that the trade is illegal and punishable by law and this is helping them to seek guidance and help from the Norwegian authorities in their efforts to quit being sex slaves. Some have their lives destroyed because they are forced into the trade by criminals who stand to gain from their prostitution.
