Norway polls its citizens with future of oil and gas (7 Visits)
Norwegians went to the polls on Monday with the future of the country's major oil and gas business. The Conservative ruling party yesterday won re-election for the first time since 1985 in a vote where oil policies were a major focus.
Although it was a narrow win, the platform was tax cutting and oil industry-stimulating. Erna Solberg declared victory, narrowly defeating a Labour-led opposition with promises of steady management of the economy, which is largely oil-dependent. Solberg plans more tax cuts as a way to stimulate growth, where opposition Labour leader had argued for tax increases to improve public services.
