Progress Party deputy Per Sandberg believes and the Crown Prince and Princess distinguish themselves politically on the left side and make people become republicans , like himself .
Both Monica Maeland (H) and FRP deputy Per Sandberg are embattled republicans in the two of the most royal believing parties in Norway . Industry Minister Monica Maeland is the first minister from the Conservative Party who are against the monarchy , writes the newspaper Dagens Næringsliv .
Both are interviewed in the book ' The republic of Norway " published this Tuesday , written by the newspaper's commentator Kjetil Bragli Alstadheim .
- If one is concerned about democracy , then one should be against the royal house. I am brought up to believe that one should choose the leaders. For me , it's about principles. Most voters would agree that one should choose their own leaders, says Sandberg to Dagens Næringsliv .
The FRP vice chairman is particularly critical of the Crown Prince and Princess , who he believes is acting more and more like politicians.
- The royal couple is on the left side of Norwegian politics, especially on the environment, climate change , immigration, and some useful questions. It only strengthens my position that we should not have a royal family . It will lead to more and more will be Republicans , he said.
The castle would not comment Sandberg statements.
