Labour remains Norway’s largest party

Bookmark and Share

The Norwegian Labour Party has remained stable in recent public opinion polls, commanding 41.2 percent of the vote in the latest poll conducted by Respons Analyse for newspaper Aftenposten. That indicates Labour continues to rank as Norway’s largest party at present.

Nearly all recent polls have shown Labour with more than 40 percent of the vote, far surpassing any other party in Norway. The two government parties, the Conservatives and the Progress Party, have been struggling of late and together hold less voter support than that for Labour alone.

Polls have also been favourable for Labour’s leader, Jonas Gahr Støre, with a recent poll showing that more than half of Norway’s voters prefer him as prime minister.
