And thus the elections are over, and the country wakes up to a new day. I have to say that I was happy when I heard the radio news at 06:00 proclaim the red-green coalition (the labour party, the socialist left party and the centre party) had won over the current right-wing side (and that there is an end to the religious rule in this country…the outgoing prime minister Kjell Magne Bondevik is a minster). I wrote that I didn’t want to detail my political views here in my blog, but those who know me know that it is the left-wing side that I belong to, and I am not trying to hide that.
It is going to be interesting to see now how things unfold, especially since there has been promises to form a majority government, something that is not very common in Norway. The last time the labour party (social democrats) were in government, it was in minority rule, this time they have promised to form a majority government together with their co-operation parties. Hopefully that will make them slightly less paralysed than last time they tried.
So, congratulations Norway! Now it is time to go back to everyday life. A red-green everyday life instead of a blue, which is quite fitting now that autumn has come.
