The Liberals progress by 0.9 percentage points from 2015 and moves up 7.4 percent in their best school elections ever.


Liberal leader Trine Skei Grande talks about what she describes as Norway’s best youth party.

“They are really on track for the future,” she said, pointing to school and climate as key mobilization issues for the party.

Young Liberals leader Tord Hustveit thinks the party’s new way of thinking appeals to many young people.

“We the young people are those who lose if we fail to turn Norway into a zero-emission society and ensure a sustainable welfare state,” said the youth leader.

Hustveit promises to work hard on Monday to “lift the Liberals forward towards the election and secure a new blue-green government”.

The liberals received support from 6.5 percent in school elections in 2015 and 6.7 percent two years before that.
