“We can do a lot with a budget, but we must prioritize,” Labor Party (AP) leader Jonas Gahr Støre said about the Solberg government’s proposal for the state budget for 2022.
“This is a very large document that we have not had access to until we heard the Minister of Finance now. We have to go into it,” Støre told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).
The budget confirms the course that the government has had for eight years, he believes.
“We can do a lot with a budget, but we must prioritize,” Støre noted.
He emphasizes that his government will have little time to come up with changes. The Solberg government started work on the state budget in March, while the Labor Party will submit its proposal during November.
“We must see what we can do with adjustments to bring out what is important to us,” he stated.
