Kjell-Ingolf Ropstad should have handled the housing issue differently, according to the leader of the Christian Democrats’ (KRF) parliamentary group, Hans Fredrik Grøvan.
- Norwegian minister received free housing from the parliament by registering at his parents’ address: “I’m very sorry”
“I do not have much more to say than what Kjell Ingolf himself has said. He regrets the assessments he made. I just want to support what he has expressed. He could have done this in a different way,” Grøvan told the newspaper VG.
Grøvan knew that Ropstad was registered in Agder. However, he did not know that the KrF leader owned a home in Lillestrøm which he rented out.
On Sunday, the newspaper Aftenposten revealed that Ropstad received free housing from the Norwegian parliament (Storting) by being registered at his parents’ address in Evje and Hornnes from 2009 to November 2020.
