The first results are supposed to start coming in at 21:00 local time (CET).

Norway has had a Conservative PM (Erna Solberg) for the past 8 years and she has ruled with different coalitions including several or all of the following: Nationalists, Liberals and Christian Democrats.

The Left-leaning parties seem likely to win this election though according to polling.

From what I gather: many Norwegians are worried about the clear divides and cracks being caused in society by the Right-wing tax cuts for the richest. Many Norwegians also worry about the climate now and realize that their oil production is contributing greatly to global climate change.

These 2 issues seem to have caused the voter shift from Right to Left.

But well see tonight.

The vote counting is on and if the current result stands when it is a total collapse of the Right.

All 4 Right-leaning parties have lost voters and the Conservatives is down 5.3% right now. That is approx 20% of their voters gone since the last election.

The Nationalists are down 3.4% which is a big chunk as well.

The Socialdemocrats are down 1.7% but seem set to take the PM-spot. The more Far-Left parties grow as well as the Green party and the Centerparty which is a farmer, countryside party.

Im guessing the SocDems have lost many voters to the Left but taken voters from the Conservatives and Nationalists.

It feels good to see the pendulum swing that way in our neighbour country! Here in Sweden it is the opposite right now. Our next election is in September 2022.

I like the Norwegian SocDems! Their negative is that they are too oil-lovey dovey but they are not afraid to push for proper SocDem policies on healthcare, social safety nets, worker rights, pro-choice, tax the rich, LGBTQ-rights.

Good that Norwegians are coming to their senses. Canada is going the opposite direction; there's a good chance the conservative party is going to win the election next week.

The initial report was pretty correct. The Left-leaning parties win a big majority: 100-68. With some new (?) party called Patient Focus (?) gaining 1 single seat.

You cant keep track of everything

We have a Left-wing Government but a Right-leaning Riksdag so they have had to do too many bad compromises and now the polls blow Right.

It's embarrassing how little I know of the politics of our neighbors. I thought Solberg was like a centrist lib/neolib or something. Glad to see the left is on the rise. Let's hope the rest of Norden follows suit.

The Others are out there! Conservatives do not think right! They are anti-vax, anti-mask, and anti-social distancing. The pandemic has killed 600,000 Americans!

It is interesting because it is both similar and different! Solberg leads the Norwegian version of M. She has let the Nationalists have plenty of control over immigration and the Christian Democrats control abortion. Women apparently need an abortion councils approval before being able to get an abortion?! While Solbergs party has given the richest tax cuts.

Yeah. Losing 20% of your seats is quite a rebuke from the people.

God damn, I took some cool pics of Norwegian Fjords yesterday, but apparently, they didn't save.
Actually, the Fjord pictures weren't great, but the weather kinda made it.
It was cloudy, but the sunrise was nice.
