Several top politicians in the Green Party (MDG) believe that a “serious green bloc” must be formed in the Norwegian parliament (Storting) after the Socialist Left Party (SV) decided to leave coalition talks with the Labor Party (AP) and the Center Party (SP) on Wednesday.
“An AP/SP government means that all environmentally committed parties in the Storting should form a green bloc to push joint environmental requirements. Jonas and Trygve can’t get a majority for any budget that does not address the climate and nature crisis,” the MDG’s Lan Marie Berg wrote on Twitter.
Berg also invited the Christian Democrats (KRF), the Red Party (Rødt), and the Liberals (Venstre) to join the bloc.
“Now, all parties that prioritize the environment must show that green is more important than red or blue. A serious green bloc can force the government to set a much greener policy than what AP and SP would be willing to do alone,” Rasmus Hansson said in a statement, according to the newspaper Vårt Land.
The two are among the MDG’s most high-profile politicians.
