Three years ago, Labor Party’s (AP) deputy leader Hadia Tajik seriously considered leaving Norwegian politics.

She revealed the details in an interview with the newspaper Dagsavisen on New Year’s Eve.

“Especially in the years 2017–2018, I thought a lot about it – if it was worth it at all, to keep doing this. It is no secret that those were quite dark years for many people in the Labor Party,” Tajik, who is currently Minister of Labor and Social Inclusion in the Støre government, said.

For many, the working environment in the parliamentary group of the Labor Party became unbearable. Political advisers and key Labor Party politicians resigned. Tajik eventually chose to stay, but she was considering leaving politics. 

“I thought it cost too much, and asked myself: Do I really want life to be like this, that I go to work and do not find joy in it,” she said.

Today, she is confident that the choice she made to stay in politics was the right one.
